Injured Bald Eagle Captured Locally

Longtime La Grange Animal Control Officer Dean Ahlschlager has caught some pretty unusual animals in his career (some bats and a hedgehog just in the last few weeks), but he admitted that Friday’s capture was a first for him.

He captured an adult bald eagle on C.H. Allen Road outside Fayetteville.

Neighbors reported seeing the bird flying in the area for years. But earlier last week it was spotted and appeared unable to fly. It went missing until Friday when Ahlschlager started getting several calls about the bird.
