Up, up and away
Kim Charlie (left) of Chehalis First Nation reacts as she helps Rob Hope (right) of Orphaned Wildlife (OWL) Rehabilitation Society release a female juvenile eagle at Sandpiper Golf Resort last Tuesday. The young bird was found by a group of fishermen a year ago along the Harrison Slough. She had two broken legs which healed incorrectly, and she also had open wounds on her chest as a result of her not being able to walk properly. The eagle was cared for and rehabilitated over the course of one year and was released back into the wild, close to where she was originally found.
