Barnabelle, a 4 year old sow, came to us starving and mangy in September a few years back. We used antibiotics to fix the parasites, and packed 90 pounds on her in 3 months, after which Barnabelle became pregnant in November (read about delayed implantation at Bears ), and delivered two cubs in January, after which she and the cubs were released in May.

Immature bald eagle release
Godzilla being releasedGodzilla being released

An immature bald eagle, named Godzilla
 because of her enormous size, came to us with lead poisoning, which generally proves fatal for eagles. She stayed with us for over a year, as we slowly worked the lead out, and was released in the Spring. Wendy and Alex do the release. She stayed along the Ausable River, and used to visit our non releasable eagles, even returned once with a boyfriend! Click on photos for enlargement

 with John Davis of Wildlands Network, Wendy and Steve Hall. This was pretty funny. Steve opened the front of the carrier, and the owl refused to move. Steve said, "that's your cue", and the owl exploded from the carrier, and flew to the top of a towering white pine. To see the video, click on the photo.
