Recently, a young Bald eagle was shot in Snohomish. You may have seen details on the major news stations, our organization responded to the scene, and rescued the eagle. We worked with law enforcement to get the details out about the illegal shooting. We immediately offered a $1000 reward and that amount was quickly matched and doubled, until finally the new reward amount was raised to $5000.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, January 17 – near Roosevelt Rd. and Hwy 2, Snohomish, WA at approximately 11:30AM
Radiographs verified that the eagle had been shot. Witnesses heard the shots and saw the eagle fall from the sky. The prognosis at intake was poor. He was stabilized and treated for his injuries, but sadly, the eagle died overnight, due to internal damage.
This was a young eagle, likely born last year. Eagles are federally protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. What happened to this eagle was senseless, illegal, and incomprehensible.
We are asking that anyone with information please contact the agencies investigating. If it is determined your information was helpful in solving this case and in helping to hold the parties responsible accountable, you could be entitled to the reward. Tips can be reported to USFWS (425) 883-8122 ext 222 or WDFW (360) 902-2928
The young Bald eagle getting some fluids after arriving at our center. Resting in our ICU, but he passed away overnight. The investigation is ongoing.
There have been many Barred owls, as well as other species of owls brought to us recently. Many were hit by cars and they all have been recovering from eye trauma. The one on the right was actually our first patient of the year. It was also our first rescue of the year. He was stuck in a chimney in Bellevue. He arrived covered in soot and had scratched one eye. He recovered and was recently released!
1. This Northern pygmy owl was found along the side of a road. She was probably hit by a car, as she is confused and clearly recovering from some head trauma. 2. This Great horned owl was found tangled in netting over a chicken coop. He injured both feet and has bruising on both wings. It appears he was stuck there in the pouring rain all day before he was discovered.
