This eagle was found in summers county 2miles from Monroe line. Monroe doesn't border mercer . I like how they posted it in the paper like the raptor center found and rescued the bird bunch of bull . My dad and some locals rescued the eagle I have the video on my cell phone. Would be willing to show it at any time. Don't take credit for something you didn't do other than nurse the bird.

Maybe so,but an injured eagle who had not been nursed back to health has little chance of survival. Before you get all hacked off at the Avian Center, you should also think about how the story was reported. They write what they want, don't care much about accuracy, just want to sell papers. Relax, your dad & the Center did the right thing any way you look at it. And thank you all!
