Okay first off, who does this? I'm hoping it was kids, too stupid and uncaring to realize the impact of shooting such a wonderful creature. Secondly, Pioneer Veterinary Clinic in Moses Lake and Blue Mountain Wildlife in Oregon are literal miracle workers!  Now, you've heard the old west movie line about how you're gonna die of lead poisoning if you get into a gun fight with the Cisco Kid, the fastest draw this side of the Pecos! It turns out this eagle is not only recovering from a gun shot, but lead poisoning also. And yes, bullets are still made out of lead, so try not to let the kids chew on 'em. See this lucky bird and his wing bandage HERE.
