SOLON– There was a notable gasp when the box was opened.
It was an ordinary looking cardboard box, but the contents were anything but.
A staff member from the Macbride Raptor Center carefully removed a mature bald eagle from the box.
The eagle, at least five years in age, came to the Raptor Center in April from Jackson County, where it was discovered in a malnourished state. According to Raptor Center Director Jodeane Cancilla, the eagle had suffered a broken wing which had already healed, but which had prevented it from hunting.
