SOAR is having a typical rehab year… but on a more personal note, we’ve had some lows this year. Kay’s friend (and SOAR’s go-to-handyman) Colton Pulver lost his life in a car accident at the end of June. Kay, SOAR, and ‘raptor nation’ lost a friend, advocate, and supporter in Bob Anderson. Bob passed away unexpectedly at the end of July. The Lucas County eagle that was admitted on 27 May with symptoms of a suspected organophosphate poisoning was ready to be released and was done so by Kay, Terrie, and Linette in honor of Colton, Bob, and with thanks to RRP. May she fly well…
Unbeknownst to many, Tyler took video of the eagle release!
In addition to the eagle from Lucas County, two hatch-year Cooper’s hawks, one hatch-year and one adult barred owl were released!
