Canyon, a male Golden Eagle was hit by a plane in Moab, Utah. He miraculously did not have any broken bones; however, he did sustain permanent nerve damage to his left wing, which makes him unable to fly. The golden eagle is the most powerful avian predator in the United States and is found primarily in remote mountainous regions. Due to habitat loss, their population is rapidly declining.
