Staffers aid in bald eagle release at Newnan’s Lake

University of Florida Veterinary Hospital staffers helped release a female juvenile bald eagle back into the wild at Newnan’s Lake on July 16.

The eagle, named Roosevelt, was brought to UF on March 18 and was treated for approximately two months at UF’s Small Animal Hospital after being found unable to¬†fly. She subsequently underwent rehabilitation at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland. When she was deemed to be ready, Audubon representatives drove Roosevelt back to Gainesville, where she was successfully released back to her original environment.
