Golden Eagle Rehabilitated and Released into Southern California Wilderness

Following two weeks of dedicated care at the San Diego Humane Society’s Ramona Wildlife Center, a golden eagle, previously found unable to fly in Riverside County, has been successfully rehabilitated and released back into the wild.

Discovered by a vigilant community member in San Jacinto, the eagle was in a dire state, covered in mud and manure, with mild abrasions on its feet, and underweight. Upon taking custody of the bird on February 5th, the Project Wildlife team immediately began its rehabilitation efforts.

While the exact cause of the eagle’s condition remains uncertain, officials speculate that the recent heavy rains in the area may have contributed to its plight. Nevertheless, a team of dedicated veterinarians provided the eagle with pain medication, treated it for parasites and dehydration, and placed it in an indoor medical ward to facilitate its recovery.

Remarkably, within less than a week, the eagle showed significant improvement, prompting its transfer to a small outdoor aviary. Continual monitoring and care led to further progress, culminating in its relocation to a much larger outdoor aviary on February 15th.

The successful rehabilitation and release of this majestic bird symbolize the power of compassion, dedication, and collaborative efforts in safeguarding wildlife. It also underscores the critical role that community members play in preserving and protecting the natural world.
