Bald eagle struck by car returned to wild by DNR

A bald eagle was clipped by a passing motorist on Route 50, Sunday, Jan. 25, stunning and inflicting apparently minor injuries on the raptor, before Department of Natural Resources officers released it later the same day.

Harry Reinhart, a local taxi driver, saw the incident and stopped to provide aid.

“I saw it get hit by the car and I was sure it was stunned,” he said, “I’m a first responder for marine animal recovery with the National Aquarium.”

It was a very good thing for the eagle, that this kind person stopped and helped render aid. What a magnificent bird.
