August 15,2015 – Cody, Wyoming
A bald eagle is recovering in Cody after being snagged by an illegal trap in Idaho. The eagle was taken to a raptor recovery center in Jackson. It may survive, but other raptors caught in traps in Wyoming have not.
The two year old doesn’t have her white head and tail yet, but she does have the strength and size of a full-grown bald eagle. She can’t fly, however, because she was injured in a trap set for coyotes.
