The Oregon State Police and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife rescued an injured bald eagle on Post Canyon Road just outside of Hood River. A Hood River resident riding a dirt bike encountered the large eagle sitting on the side of the road unable to fly, reported it to the OSP and left an identifying marker on the road nearby. Numerous other reports were made regarding the eagle, indicating it was flying very low and appeared unsteady in flight before it crashed into a small creek. OSP and ODFW officers arrived and located the injured eagle about 45 minutes later, and transported it to the Rowena Wildlife Clinic for treatment. The clinic reports the eagle does not have any obvious injuries and is conscious and alert. The clinic is working to determine the cause of the eagle’s illness and has taken blood samples for analysis. They will also be taking x-rays to determine if there are any spinal injuries or other fractures.
