A mature bald eagle was found on the lawn of a resident in Masstown, Nova Scotia with a fish hook in its wing and beak.
The resident was able to cut the barb of the hook and free the bird’s beak. It was then brought to the CWRC for treatment.
After a physical exam we decided it was best to remove the hook under anesthetic.
This was successfully done at Central Nova Animal Hospital.
We kept the bird overnight to monitor its recovery and then released it the next morning.
