On Wednesday, May 8, representatives from LSU’s Wildlife Hospital of Louisiana released a pair of bald eagles back into the wild near Gramercy after the pair spent nearly a month recovering from injuries at the hospital.
The bald eagles, a juvenile that had been knocked from its nest and an adult that had been exposed to pesticides, arrived at LSU only days apart and were nursed back to health at the university's Wildlife Hospital of Louisiana at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine.
