Bald eagle struck in Kewaunee County dies

Wildlife officials are reminding you to slow down for wild animals after a bald eagle struck in Kewaunee County last week died. Sue Theys of Wildlife of Wisconsin told Fox News Digital on Monday that the bird passed away after a few days of examination. Theys suggested something was wrong with the bald eagle before it was struck, adding that it was very thin and it was possibly not strong enough to get out of the way of the oncoming car. The eagle died two days after it was taken in and the Department of Natural Resources has the option to do a necropsy if it chooses to do so. Things had looked more promising last week when the hope was that a dented beak was the most the bald eagle may have to suffer long-term from after being struck by a vehicle last Thursday. Deputies discovered the bald eagle in a ditch near what is presumed to be its nesting location near County Highway K and Red River Lincoln Townline Road, which is between the communities of Frog Station and Casco. The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department contacted a bald eagle rescue group for an expert’s opinion on the bird. At the time it appeared the bald eagle did not sustain any major injuries and that it could have been released near where it was found once it was healthy.
