Update on Bald Eagle Patient

Dr. Julia Ponder, Executive Director, and
Drew Bickford, Senior Veterinary Technician
The bald eagle patient, thought to be male, that was injured near Duluth, was seen for a routine clinic check up today.  The puncture wounds were cleaned, and the bird's weight and other vitals were taken, among other things. 

The Raptor Center is proud to play a vital role in conservation research and veterinary medicine.  As with all of our patients, each one brings a new piece to the overall body of knowledge we continue to build on species. Every individual is a lens to their population with an opportunity to gain more understanding, or ask different questions.
