TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — An injured eagle is recovering after it crashed to the ground following a “territorial battle” in Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.
FWC said on Nov. 10, a call came in from resident John Wheeler who said he saw two eagles fighting mid-air.
The eagles got their talons entangled in a battle and crashed to the ground, FWC said. One managed to fly off but the other did not.
A video shows biologist Anni Mitchen and regional director Chris Wynn rescuing the eagle.
