Area wardens rescue young bald eagle

Wisconsin DNR conservation wardens Meghan Jensen and Ryan Lowry got word on Tuesday that a bald eagle appeared to be in trouble and unable to get back into flight.
The two La Crosse area wardens, joined by a Trempealeau County Sheriff's Office deputy, set off to see what was up with the mighty bird.
They found a juvenile bald eagle that had one of its legs caught in an area near a pond. With steady hands, a cover and teamwork, the wardens were able to carefully extract the youthful bird and release it in an open area.
"It was an awfully windy day, but we were able to watch the youngster take flight, appearing to have no major injuries," Jensen said.
