    Sea eagle soars free after swallowing fishhooks

    A sea eagle chick that was found tangled in fishing line in Sçotland in June was in a bad way. He had swallowed two fish hooks.

    He underwent an emergency op though, and at 12 weeks old has now just been released near his old nest site at Loch Arkaig.

    There's an x-ray of the hooks inside him at the link. Amazed he survived them.

    The unfortunate sea eagle chick probably ate the bait that was on the hooks. I am glad he was found and that he could be saved. I hope he finds a mate and there are lots more sea eagle chicks in the future. They are a beautiful bird.
    Amazing story Zwiebel, thanks.
