Second eagle dies at WSU Vet Hospital
January 28, 2008

PULLMAN — The second of two very weak and starving bald eagles found near Colville, Wash., died Friday night at WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

 

The body of the 5 year-old mature eagle “Carpenter” was found in his cage by crews Saturday morning.

 

“This is a very difficult time for everyone here who works to save raptors,” said Dr. Nickol Finch, who heads up the raptor rehabilitation program at WSU. “We have students and volunteers who spend countless hours fighting to save these great animals, but given these eagles’ poor condition the odds of survival were not good from the beginning.”

Young eagle Jordan dies

PULLMAN – One of two very weak and starving bald eagles found near Colville, Wash., has died at WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

The eagle suffered severe dehydration, hypothermia, and had lost a large percentage of its normal body weight before it was found in the wild unable to fly.  During treatment at WSU, the eagle remained very lethargic and was not eating well.  Veterinary care providers said Jordan passed quietly in its enclosure.
