UNION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A bald eagle was paralyzed after it was hit by a car near Mount Pleasant.
The bald eagle was originally found lying in the road in the 1200 block of E. Remus Road in Union Township Wednesday afternoon, but it was eventually able to limp off the road. It appeared to have at least one broken leg, according to police.
Officers called the DNR which transported the bald eagle to the Wildlife Recovery Association in Shepherd, Michigan.
A veterinarian examined the eagle and determined it had suffered paralysis, but it doesn’t appear to have a fractured back.
The Isabella County Sheriff’s Department was told the eagle has a 50-percent chance of surviving.
