WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - Staff at the Wahpeton zoo are nursing an injured bald eagle back to health.

The Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1xB4Nvj ) that the eagle was found with an injured wing a couple of months ago in Ransom County. Officials at Tewaukon National Wildlife Refuge brought the bird to an animal hospital in Wahpeton. It was treated and brought to the Chahinkapa Zoo for rehabilitation.

Zoo staff tried to release the eagle back into the wild late last month but determined the eagle’s wing wasn’t yet strong enough to sustain it in flight. They have moved the raptor to a larger enclosure with multiple perches for a few weeks to allow for a better recovery.
