GRANTS PASS, Ore. — An injured bald eagle saved by Oregon State Police (OSP) in Josephine County earlier last week is now on the road to recovery at Wildlife Images Rehabilitation and Education Center near Grants Pass.

According to OSP, a concerned citizen reported the injured eagle to dispatch, saying that it was in the Sunny Valley area along I-5. Sgt. Benson, Trooper Gosse and Trooper Ziegler from OSP responded, managing to get the eagle into a crate for safe transport to Wildlife Images.

"Special thanks goes out to the citizens for reporting this injured eagle. If you see any injured wildlife, please do not try to engage," OSP said in its original post.

Now the noble bird is in recovery after receiving treatment at the rehabilitation center.

"We are treating an American bald eagle for a wound and high levels of lead," Wildlife Images said in a post.

According to Wildlife Images, the eagle had a "deep wound" on its foot that required treatment with honey, a natural antibiotic. The eagle will also be receiving pain medication, anti-fungal meds, and oral antibiotics.

"We are especially grateful to the folks who let OSP Troopers know that this bird needed help. If you think a wild animal is injured, sick, or abandoned - you can always call our team to find out the best way to help," Wildlife Images said.
