Dramatic Footage of Bald Eagle Rescue on Cowichan River, B.C.
Here is a real life adventure that took place on the Cowichan River the other day. Two amazing fishing guides saw a wounded bald eagle flopping around and off they went to see what they could do.
"During today’s drift down the Cowichan river we came across an injured Bald Eagle on the beach.
Guide Peter Dick managed to capture it and we called Pacific Northwest Raptors to come and meet us at the bottom of the river.
The Eagle was totally calm while being held and transported, which surprised all of us. We named the Eagle ‘Cowi’ and we plan on visiting him over the next couple of days to see how he’s doing.
His wing seemed to be broken, and who knows how long he has been on that beach.
We are just glad that there are people like the Pacific Northwest Raptors that care enough to help wounded animals like this beautiful Bald Eagle. I hope “Cowi” heals up and can be released into the wild once again."
Sadly “Cowi” had to be put down. His wing was damaged beyong repair.
