Family helps eagle after hitting it on highway

America’s signature bird has rebounded from near extinction, but that means more human-eagle conflicts. Robbi Tribbey and her son Devin Lindberg accidentally hit a bald eagle as it fed on a carcass on a roadside. They drove the injured bird to the Wildwoods Rehabilitation Center in Duluth, Minn., where staff said the female, 10-pound eagle was one of the largest they’d ever seen. More treatment was needed, so the bird was taken to the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine’s Raptor Center in St. Paul, where staff treat 100 eagles yearly.

I know Dr Pat Reddig who runs the Raptor Center, and have visited it. It is a state of the art clinic and rehab center.
