BOYDS, Md. (AP) - A Montgomery County animal services officer has rescued an injured bald eagle.

Officials say they received calls Thursday morning about an injured eagle near a road in the Potomac area. Officer Jennifer Gill responded to the call and found the eagle in the woods with an injury that prevented it from flying.

Gill and a fellow officer took the eagle, which was nicknamed Trust, to the Owl Moon Raptor Center in Boyds, Maryland. An examination determined that the bird had suffered from internal bleeding and sustained an injury to the left shoulder.

Owl Moon Raptor Center director Suzanne Shoemaker tells media outlets that Trust is eating and recovering.

She says the eagle was probably hit by a car as it was eating a dear carcass, which was found nearby.
