Man Spots Bald Eagle In The Middle Of Highway And Saves Her Life.
The eagle wouldn’t have been able to get off the road without Miller’s assistance.
In some cases, wild animals react badly to being picked up by another human, but she didn’t give Miller a whole lot of trouble. On some level, instinct or otherwise, she must have realized that her life relied on the well-being of the human who saved her.
Unfortunately, the bystanders in the area did something that startled the bald eagle a little bit.
They started taking their cellphones out in order to take photos, but their proximity caused her to get riled up. Fortunately, Miller was able to get people to stop which calmed the eagle down eventually.
As soon as Miller moved the eagle to the side of the road, he reached out to 911 for some help.
They, in turn, reached out to a local rehab center that dedicates itself to the well-being of wild birds. But help didn’t come right away. Miller had to hold the 15-pound eagle for nearly an hour until rescuers showed up.
It wasn’t long before 6abc Action News got word of the bald eagle’s amazing rescue near Route 30.
Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research also announced that the eagle Miller had saved on the highway had an injured wing sutured and was recovering. Her abrasions were also treated and the animal was being monitored by staff and fellow volunteers.
This was the 45th bald eagle that came through the doors of Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research.
The non-profit rescue relies on donations to continue to care for poor defenseless and injured wild birds. So, while they’re grateful for Miller’s help, they’re asking people to lend a hand by contributing to the treatment of creatures like this bald eagle.
