Share post:

LOWELL, IN – A trooper of the Indiana State Police-Lowell Post, Master Trooper Mike Laney, rescued an injured bald eagle while patrolling on State Road 63 in Vermillion County Tuesday.

In a tweet by Sergeant Matt Ames, the trooper reported carefully placed the eagle in his patrol car and took it to a local veterinarian. The tweet did not specify when the eagle was found, but it did show a photo of the bird wrapped in black and red plaid cloth. 

The bald eagle is a national symbol of the United States and was declared the national bird in 1782. The state of Indiana had over 350 nesting territories in 2020, an increase from only two nesting sites 31 years prior.
