Young Adult Wedge-tailed Eagle Euthanised

This adult male Wedge-tailed Eagle was rescued after he was found weak and exhausted on the ground at Pretty Gully, north/west of Tabulam. He was rushed to the Casino Vet Clinic where vet Ed King anaesthetised and conducted a physical examination.  X-rays  revealed a fractured femur with advanced osteomyelitis (bone infection). Sadly the only option was euthanasure.
