Bald Eagles Mysteriously Dying In Utah!!

Filed under: Sad SadHealthScience!SickScary!BirdsEagle

Bald Eagles mysteriously dying off in Utah!

In Utah, bald eagles are getting sick and dying and no one knows why!

So far, at least 16 eagles have died since the beginning of this month alone!

That's so awful!

Of those dead birds, half were found already dead and the others died or were euthanized while in the care of wildlife officials.

Thankfully, a lab in Madison, Wisconsin is doing blood and toxicology work to try and find out what's going on. Sadly, there won't be any results for a few weeks.

The problem is, because officials have no idea what's going on, they have no clue as to how to treat or prevent it.

The symptoms are pretty scary. The birds have weakness in their legs, then one leg goes paralyzed, followed by the other. After that the birds get head tremors and eventually seizures. They die in about three or four days.

Wildlife officials are now advising people not to touch the birds should they see one and to instead contact the Division of Wildlife Resources.

This is kinda way scary! We hope this isn't an Outbreak style scenario!

Baby Bald Eagles Ruin Seattle's July 4th Fireworks

Filed under: BirdsEagle

Baby Bald Eagles

Seattle's July 4th fireworks show is going to have to make some adjustments because of some very cute, fragile little critters.

There's a pair of cute, baby bald eagles nesting in a tree near the shore of Lake Washington, where a floating launch pad normally holds the massive amount of fireworks used in the grand celebration.

This year, the barge is going to be moved about 350 yards away from the nest, so there's less of a chance of disturbing the bald eagles.

The problem is the babies are only six to eight weeks old, so they can't fly yet.

Vet Performs Mouth-To-Beak CPR On Bald Eagle

Filed under: YouTubeAmazingEagle

Solute to one fabulous vet!

This injured bald eagle was brought to veterinarian, Jeff Cooney, after the birdie was hit by a car.

The bird stopped breathing after going under anesthesia and amazingly the increda-vet did his American duty and blew breath back into the bird's lungs with mouth to beak CPR!

The eagle, named Patriot, suffered spinal trauma and a broken wing, and both legs were paralyzed.

Cooney said it was unlikely that Patriot would fly again, but he might be strong enough to live at a wild bird center within a few months.

Bald Eagle Found Decapitated

Filed under: Sad SadDisgusting!Animal CrueltyEagle

Bald Eagle found dead

Ugh! Just days after the amazing footage of our national bird hatching out of it's shell was caught on camera, another has fallen victim to a disgusting crime.

Authorities have found a bald eagle shot and beheaded in northeast Louisiana and are offering a $2,000 reward for information about the crime.

The wildlife officials believe the bird was shot several days before it was discovered in a ditch on Sunday.

What a stupid and senseless crime. If convicted for killing or beheading an endangered bald eagle, the perpitrator can be fined up to $250,000 along with two years in prison.

We hope someone comes forward with information and justice gets served.
