Eagle in Recovery at Santa Fe Raptor Center

A young bald eagle is fighting for its life at the Santa Fe Raptor Center. Game and Fish found the eagle at the bottom of a canyon near Questa. They took the bird to the Raptor Center and it was in bad shape, leading them to believe it had lead poisoning, most likely from a hunter’s bullet. The eagle had been having seizures, a side effect of lead poisoning. If you would like to help the eagle in its recovery or any other birds at the Raptor Center, click here.
