A bald eagle rescued by Henrico Police Animal Protection officers in March after being struck by a vehicle was released back into its natural habitat May 25.
The eagle was struck in Eastern Henrico March 20 while scavenging a deer carcass on the side of a road. The driver stayed on scene and alerted police, and Animal Protection Officer Shane Drinkwater responded and was able to capture the bird, then transport it to the Wildlife Center of Virginia for rehabilitation.
Following two months there, the bird was deemed healthy enough to return to nature and was released from Berkeley Plantation in Charles City County.
