Busch Gardens Saves Bald Eagle on 4th of July!
Orlando Fun and Food hopes all their readers had a better 4th of July than this guy! Busch Gardens Tampa rescued a American Bald Eagle on the 4th of July at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. The eagle was found unable to fly and was transported to the state of the art Animal Care Center at Busch Gardens. After some X-Rays, the eagle was found to have a wing injury due to a broken metacarpal bone. Surgery was performed today, and the eagle is resting comfortably. The bald eagle, whose gender is unknown, will stay under the close watch of Busch Gardens’ animal care staff for the next 4-6 weeks and then be moved to a rehabilitation facility.
