Eagle in Recovery at Santa Fe Raptor Center

Always On

A young bald eagle is fighting for its life at the Santa Fe Raptor Center.

Game and Fish found the eagle at the bottom of a canyon near Questa.

They took the bird to the Raptor Center and it was in bad shape, leading them to believe it had lead poisoning, most likely from a hunter’s bullet.

The eagle had been having seizures, a side effect of lead poisoning.
