A bald Eagle nicknamed “Promise” was released Tuesday after recovering from lead poisoning through treatment at Tamarack Wildlife Center.
The bird, approximately 5 years old, was found Aug. 22 and was not able to fly, according to a news release from Tamarack. A second adult bald eagle, most likely a family member, was found deceased nearby.
The bird was the sixth eagle out of 14 admitted to test positive for lead poisoning this year at Tamarack and the only one to survive, the release said. Typically, 35% of eagles admitted to Tamarack suffer from lead poisoning.
Promise was released on State Game Lands near Pymatuning, not far from the Jamestown location where she was initially found, the release said.
