CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A female bald eagle that nested in the New River Gorge has died from injuries suffered last month when she was hit by a train and later by a vehicle.

Three Rivers Avian Center executive director Wendy Perrone says the eagle, named Streaky, was euthanized Monday after she failed to regain the use of her legs and her liver shut down.

Perrone tells the Charleston Gazette (https://bit.ly/1kDwgUa ) that Streaky couldn’t eat, drink or respond favorably to injections of fluids in recent days.

The eagle collided with the windshield of a passenger train locomotive in the gorge on March 7. She later was hit by a vehicle.

Streaky and her mate, Whitey, had nested in the gorge since 2010.
