Another known trapped Bald Eagle

February 3,2016 – Clarenville
Another known trapped Bald Eagle. This one relying on a landfill to eat as hunting for food with a trap attached is out of the question. Hopping along the ground to scavenge would also be difficult and is how it perhaps was caught in the leghold trap to begin with. Trapping is indiscriminate. No excuses for this cruel recreation. We hope this Eagle can be caught and saved! Thank you to all who are helping!
