Bald Eagles Rescued At Duluth Airport By Conservation Officers After Becoming Entagled With Each Other
Thanks to Wildwoods Rehabilitation center for posting this on their Facebook page. At first I didn’t believe what I was seeing! Two bald eagles were engaged in aerial combat above the Duluth Airport when their talons locked together and they fell onto the tarmac.
Conservation officer Randy Hanzel came to help the eagles, who were locked together. Since he didn’t have a kennel big enough to fit these large birds, he put them in the back of his truck with a tarp covering them. During the truck ride, the eagles broke free from each other, and one flew away. The other eagle has some deep talon wounds and will be brought back to health at the Raptor Center.
