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.
