THIRD LEAD POISONED EAGLE AT CWRC THIS YEAR

Updated: Jun 11

Today we admitted a mature male bald eagle. It tested positive for lead. This is the third eagle we have admitted for lead poisoning this year and the 5th bird.


This bird is very emaciated and its blood lead level is very high. We have begun chelation treatment but its prognosis is poor.



This is how lead gets into bald eagles.
