Local entities help rescue bald eagle

This American icon may no longer be on the Endangered Species List, but one bald eagle found itself in quite a tough spot recently. Clallam County Sheriff’s deputies, Clallam County PUD and the Northwest Raptor &Wildlife Center of Sequim worked to save a bald eagle trapped in a power line in Port Angeles on March 12. At about 12:40 p.m. that day, a Port Angeles resident reported an injured eagle at the intersection of Edgewood Drive and Dry Creek Road. PUD workers shut off electricity to the area. Once power was switched off, the eagle managed to free itself from the power line. Branches from an adjacent tree broke the fall of the eagle and it landed on the ground without further injury, sheriff’s office officials said. Deputies then secured the eagle in a blanket and turned it over to Gary and Jaye Moore of the Northwest Raptor &Wildlife Center — a state-licensed 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to rehabilitating and caring for injured, orphaned, abandoned or permanently incapacitated wildlife (see nwraptorcenter.com).
