ST. IGNACE, Mich. (AP) - A bald eagle that was cared for at a Michigan raptor sanctuary has been released near the Mackinac Bridge.

MLive.com reports that the eagle named “Mighty Mac” took off Tuesday from Bridge View Park in St. Ignace.

Wings of Wonder, a rehabilitation center, had been caring for the bird after receiving a call in August from a concerned person in Manistee County who spotted him sitting on a fence post at a horse ranch.

Wings of Wonder founder and Director Rebecca Lessard has said the weakened eagle was in an intensive care clinic for 48 hours and may have been suffering from the effects of West Nile virus.
