SOMERSET COUNTY, Pa. - A Golden Eagle hit by a train and rehabilitated for weeks at the Wildlife Works in Westmoreland County is flying again.
The wildlife center spent five weeks rehabbing the eagle. Rehabilitation even included a chiropractor and acupuncturist.
“We were pretty worried especially about the leg because the leg was completely not functional when he came in,” said Beth Shaof of the Wildlife Works.
The eagle suffered nerve damage in its leg, and the bones at the end of its wing were broken.
On Thursday, the eagle was released in Somerset County, where it was found injured.
A small group gathered for the event.
