Rescued eagle to soar again in King George
The Wildlife Center of Virginia will release a bald eagle on Wednesday at Land’s End Wildlife Management Area in King George at 11 a.m. The release is free and open to the public, though an RSVP is requested to the center at: firstname.lastname@example.org. On hand will be Ed Clark, president and co-founder of the wildlife center in Waynesboro; Doug Domenech, state secretary of Natural Resources, and Robert Duncan, director of the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. An animal-control officer in King George picked up the mature eagle on Nov. 11. It apparently had been in a fight with another eagle and was taken to a local wildlife rehabilitator for care, and admitted to the wildlife center two days later.
