Bold Bald Eagle Captured After Taking Stroll Down California Highway

It goes without saying that seeing a bald eagle strolling down the middle of an interstate highway is not something you see every day.

Alarmed drivers on California’s Interstate 5 called the California Highway Patrol in Redding, and troopers rescued the eagle Wednesday.  When they first arrived, troopers had to coax the eagle from a driving lane onto the shoulder, and a wildlife official eventually arrived to take things from there.

According to a post from the state Fish and Wildlife Department, the eagle is an adult male.

There’s no word yet as to what’s ailing the eagle, which is apparently unable to fly, but the bird is recuperating at a raptor rescue facility.

“A whole lot of people are wishing the big fella gets well soon,”

When the big bird is diagnosed and treated he will be released back into the wild.
