SUFFIELD, Conn. (AP) - A bald eagle found injured last week by construction workers in Connecticut has been released back into the wild.

The bird was treated for six deep puncture wounds and four smaller wounds at the Massachusetts Birds of Prey rehabilitation facility in Conway, Massachusetts.

Officials there say it responded well to antibiotics.

It was released Friday morning near where it was found in Suffield, Connecticut in front of a cheering crowd.

Wildlife officials say the bird likely suffered its injuries fighting another eagle during what is mating season.
