A Bald Eagle Named Beauty

The bald eagle not only is the symbol of our nation, but is also one of the most awesome and majestic creatures that resides on this continent. I came across a heart breaking article in the March/April 2009 issue of Science Illustrated about a bald eagle named "Beauty" that had been found in terrible condition in Dutch Harbor Alaska in 2005. It's beak had been destroyed after being shot, which left her unable to feed herself. A raptor center took her in and....well watch the video and let it tell the rest of this amazing story.

Kirk/PSYL,

I agree- a great story, especially with all the negative news we've had that deals with our environment it's good to know there are those out there that still give a dang.
