WATCH: Bald Eagle Stranded In A Field - Why?

posted by Big Jim - 

Rescuing a bald eagle is probably not only not on anybody's bucket list, it doesn't even sound like something anyone would have to do.  But here in Oklahoma, a game warde finds this bald eagle more or less trapped on this field, unable to fly more than a few feet at at time.  Watch as he gets close to the eagle and learns what the problem is, and how he acts to rescue this creature so connected with our nation!

#FreeAsABird Winter storms are hard on wildlife! Ranchers on the Osage/Kay county line spotted this eagle covered with ice this afternoon after the ice storm ended. Game Warden Spencer Grace arrived and located the bird. The eagle was able to fly short distances. Warden Grace was eventually able to catch it and warm the bird up in his truck. About 45 minutes later the bird was released in the same pasture and flew to his usual perch where the ranchers see it daily.
