An eagle is an eagle is an eagle

This fellow had a severe electric shock. He was in very bad shape when they brought him in.

A day later I asked one of the Staff how he was doing. They said he wasn’t eating, well…”What are you feeding him?”…. “Rice, veggies, and cheese?”…”Are you crazy?. He’s an intense carnivore.”…And so the diet was immediately changed.

We had him in a 3x 3 x 4 foot cage. Need I tell you that he was very, very unhappy.

We were able to release him within a week. Because of his majesty and that he was so unhappy we tried after four days. But it was a bit too soon. These first three photos are of Sekar unsuccessfully trying to “free him”. But he was still too weak to fly.

4A4Okay Big Guy, see if you can make it. 4B4Well, maybe in a few more days. 4C4 Come Big Fellow. We'll try again, soon.

Several days later they took him out in the cage. I told them to get good videos. But once they opened the gate, it all happened so quickly that the first shot they got was a photo of him in the distance….C'est la vie…

4D4Thought I asked you guys to get a good video.

Freedom. Freedom. Freedom…Thank you for blessing us with your majesty…May you be protected, guided, and live in unbounded joy…Om Namah Shivaya…With love, From  the Staff, and the rest of us who were graced by your presence.
