A bird rarely seen in southwest Virginia was released back into the wild Monday after three months of rehabilitation.
The Golden Eagle, which never got a name, was rescued back in August after it was found on the ground.
It is thought to be less than a year old. No one knows how it got injured, but common dangers to these birds include being hit by a car, lead poisening from hunters' bullets and wind turbines.
Workers at the Wildlife Center of Virginia rehabilitated the bird until they believed it was ready to survive in the wild again.
