Eagle found injured on side of road euthanized
Beacon Falls — A bald eagle found injured by the side of a Connecticut highway last week has died.
The bird was found with a broken wing and soft tissue injuries last Wednesday at the side of Route 8 in Beacon Falls. Authorities say the injuries were consistent with a car strike.
The eagle was taken to the Audubon Society wildlife rehabilitation center in Sharon. The center in a Facebook post said the eagle was taken to a Berlin animal hospital over the weekend to be euthanized.
Erinn Whitmore, a wildlife rehabilitation assistant at the center, tells the Republican American the bird was euthanized because it was unlikely to recover.
A band on the bird's leg identified it as a male that was a nestling in Connecticut in May 2003.
