Injured Bald Eagle Released Along Lake Erie

(Marblehead, OH) There's one more bald eagle flying high along the North Coast.

A bald eagle release this week at East Harbor State Park is the second this year for Back to the Wild, a nonprofit group that rehabilitates injured animals. 

It's unclear how the six-year old bald eagle injured its wing, but suffered soft tissue damage and had to learn to fly again in a 150 foot-long cage. 

The summertime release was timed on purpose, because the symbol of America is less territorial this time of year. 

The nature education center has taken in 160 injured bald eagles over the past 20 years-- many of them either hit by big rigs or suffering from lead poisoning transmitted by lead pellets found in fish or wild animals.
