LSU Vet School releases bald eagle after treatment

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

An injured bald eagle is now soaring the skies again after receiving medical treatment.

Officials said the eagle was found in the New Orleans area earlier this year.

It had a broken right shoulder. The fracture took about three months to heal.
