An adult female bald eagle was released in Gloucester on Friday after more than three months of rehabilitation. The eagle was found injured on March 9 on Crany Creek Drive and taken to the Yorktown Animal Emergency Center before being transferred to the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro two days later. Her injuries included puncture wounds, abrasions and lead toxicosis.
