Dogs, or otherwise known as a man’s best friend, have continued to live up to the title given to them by humans. They help not only humans but every living thing that needs it—that includes an injured eagle.
It started one Thursday morning when Pam Weber, Kerrie Burns, and their 3-year-old Golden Retriever, Kenai, went out for a walk near the Sucker River and Lake Superior. Kenai started showing signs of agitation when she saw an injured eagle in the nearby brush.
As Pam, Kerrie, and Kenai continued to walk closer to where the eagle was, the bird kept on hopping down to the shore. Since it was already starting to get darker, Pam and Kerrie decided to postpone the eagle’s rescue mission and went back to their homes.
The next morning, Pam and Kerrie went back to see if the eagle was still at the place where they last saw it, but unfortunately, they did not. Luckily, Pam and Kerrie saw some footprints, which led them to the injured bird.
Pam and Kerrie saw the eagle near the shore, but because they did not want to scare the bird off, they retreated. Instead, the two contacted the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for some assistance.
When the DNR rescuers managed to catch the bird successfully, they saw the eagle chilled, and feathers, frozen. As soon as Pam and Kerrie arrived at the Wildwoods in Duluth, the staff gave the injured bird some fluids and slowly thawed its frozen feathers.
Pam and Kerrie transported the eagle to the Raptor Center in St. Paul. Results showed that the bird suffered lead poisoning and a soft tissue injury of the left shoulder. The Raptor Center thanked Pam, Kerrie, Kenai, and the DNR rescuers for their efforts in giving the injured eagle another chance at life.
