MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (AP) - A young bald eagle will soar once again following six weeks of recovery at an Arkansas veterinary clinic.

The Baxter Bulletin (https://bit.ly/1EV4JHr ) reports a small crowd gathered Wednesday to watch the eagle be released at Pigeon Creek. Among those in attendance were the bird’s caretakers, Dr. Rob Conner of All Creatures Veterinary Hospital in Mountain Home and wildlife officers of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

Veterinary staff estimates the eagle was more than a month old when it was found on the ground at a walking and biking trail at the creek. Wildlife officials say the bird appeared to be malnourished then.

A person at the creek notified the Game and Fish Commission after spotting the bird on a trail.
