An injured bald eagle found last June north of Spokane WA was given a 30% chance of surviving because of a fracture near a joint. The eagle named Glen beat those odds and was released at the Little Spokane River Natural Area on November 27, 2012.

Glen was fitted with an identifying ankle tag while recovering at the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

WSU CVM Bald Eagle Release

by WSU CVM 12. March 2012 16:37

A bald eagle, about 5 years of age and presumably male, was presented to the Washington State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in late January 2012 with signs of severe lead poisoning. His blood lead level was 0.52 micrograms/g which is over twice the level considered toxic. He was treated with intravenous fluids and calcium EDTA which binds the lead.

Sauder responded well to treatment and was released outside of Orofino ID on March 12, 2012.
