WCSO releases rehabilitated bald eagle

Used by permission by the Warren County Office employee Sergeant Terry Fritts

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office released a bald eagle on Monday that was previously rescued by a few of their deputies.

In December, Warren County Sheriff’s were notified about a bald eagle in the Bentonville area that had been confined to the same location for two days.

Deputy Weaver, Sergeant Calvin Clatterbuck, and Department of Wildlife Resources officer Jackson Dierberg teamed up to safely capture the eagle who was then turned over to Wildlife Veterinary Care in Millwood.

The eagle rehabilitated for two months at the clinic until healthy enough for release.

If you see injured or at risk wildlife, please contact your local law enforcement’s non-emergency number.
