Three months after a golden eagle suffering from lead poisoning was found in Elko, it has been released back into the wild. The Free Press previously reported that the bird of prey had been found by an Elko resident near a deer carcass. It was promptly transported to Vancouver, where it was treated by the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (OWL).
