ONE WING, bald eagle
This adult female Bald Eagle, One Wing, was used for target practice and was shot from a telephone pole in Oklahoma. She broke three bones in her wing and is unable to fly. She spent 18 months in New Mexico at an eagle hospital, was deemed non-releasable, and then was sent to Hawk Creek. This majestic creature had stolen from her exactly what she is a symbol of—freedom. One Wing was the inspiration for our Walk with the Eagles™ sanctuary, and is a daily reminder that our work here is not done.
