Yesterday, the Green Balkans Wildlife Rescue Centre received a signal for an injured Eagle.

The signal was given by residents of a Yambol village. For two days, people watched the eagle on the outskirts of the village. The bird had landed on the ground and, according to their description, did not take off.
A team from the Centre responded to the place where it became clear that it was a young White-tailed eagle.

After transportation and examination by veterinary specialists in the outpatient clinic of the Rescue Centre and with the help of radiography, it turned out that the bird has a broken wing and weight - significantly below the normal.

Currently, the young eagle is in the intensive care unit of the Center and is taken care of by veterinarians and interns, veterinary students at the Trakia University, part of the 'Student Internships - Phase 2' project, funded by the Operational Program 'Science and Education for Smart Growth', co-financed by the European Social Fund, some of which also took part in the rescue operation.

A probable cause of the eagle's condition is a collision with the wires of the transmission lines located near the place where it was found.
