Bald eagle found shot to be released into wild

DURAND – A bald eagle found shot has recovered after surgery and will be released back into the wild.

The Rockford Register Star reported that the young eagle will be released Saturday afternoon at Starved Rock State Park.

The bird was found in late October along the Illinois River. Veterinarians at Countryside Animal Clinic in Streator performed a successful surgery. The eagle has been recovering at Hoo Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center in Durand.

Hoo Haven Director Karen Herdklotz said the male eagle is doing well and Saturday will be a "big celebration."
