Members of the Alaska Department of Public Safety released eagles at the Alaska Raptor Center in Sitka on Saturday (3-31-12) in honor of the governor’s “Choose Respect” initiative. An audience of around 100 gathered on the center’s boardwalk trail to watch the four birds return to the wild. “Barry” was recovered in Sitka, suffering from two deep, infected wounds of unknown cause.
“Sweet Kakes” fell out of a nest in Kake last spring. The rehabilitated one-year old was released by Elizabeth, to celebrate her recovery as a victim of domestic violence.
