Rescued Eagle Likely Died From Rat Poisoning

An Eagle rescued from the median of Interstate Five on Wednesday morning has died. The Bald Eagle was captured by CHP Officers, Sheriff’s Deputies and a Fish and Wildlife Warden just south of Knighton Road after multiple callers reported seeing it and some drivers tried to shield it from oncoming traffic. The Eagle could barely get off the ground and the Warden speculated that it likely had eaten a rodent that had ingested rat poison. That was also the prognosis made by the Defiance Canyon Raptor Rescue, where the Eagle died Thursday.
