Reverent whispers of awe were spoken by the crowd gathered to witness something few are lucky to see: the release of a rehabilitated bald eagle back to the wild.
Eddie the Eagle
A bald eagle was found by the road on a turnout near the Cinnamon Lodge shortly before 5 p.m. Motorists and wildlife rehabilitation experts mobilized to save his life. Considering the location, it is likely he was hit by a car, according to Becky Kean, rehabilitation director at the Montana Raptor Conservation Center.
