January 02, 2020

From the Wildlife Center of Virginia website:

"Bald Eagle #19-3193 was admitted in early November after being found weak on the ground in Chatham, Virginia.  It was found to have an enlarged heart and abnormally high levels of lead in its blood.  Fortunately, this eagle has responded well to treatment and has completely recovered and is ready for release."
