Bald Eagle release today in Texas

In Texas' Shelby County, a Bald Eagle will regain its freedom today near Lake Timpson. After nearly six months of recovery and rehabilitation, the raptor will leave Last Chance Forever Bird Conservancy in San Antonio, where it regained its health after being shot in September 2009.

Authorities continue to offer a $2,500 reward for information that will lead to an arrest in the shooting. Although no longer on the federal Endangered Species List, Bald Eagles remain federally protected. Texas Parks & Wildlife Department game wardens are working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the criminal investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call USFW: 281-876-1520.
