A bald eagle struck by an aircraft near the Newport News-Williamsburg Airport Jan. 20 died from its injuries Sunday, according to WVEC.
The eagle, likely seven or eight years old, was taken to the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro with a fractured left wing and a lung infection. Sunday, however, the eagle’s conditioned worsened after its morning treatment.
“It started throwing up fluids and showing respiratory distress,” Wildlife Center spokesman Randy Huwa said. “He was tubed and epinephrine was administered, but the eagle could not be revived.”
