Bald Eagle from Eau Claire

An adult Bald Eagle from Eau Claire has arrived. He has lead poisoning with high levels of of blood lead and is under treatment. Thank you DNR Warden Ken Thomson for rescuing the eagle and meeting our transporter. Thank you to Kim Arrowwood and her sons for making the long drive to get the eagle to REGI for car. it was such a great experience for the boys to be involved in helping this critically ill eagle. 
He is the third eagle we've admitted this week with lead poisoning. Ours is only one of many facilities in the country to be overwhelmed with lead poisoning cases following gun deer season in areas where lead ammunition is used.
