Two rescued eagles undergoing treatment at Okinawa Zoo

Date Posted: 2002-02-07

Two crested serpent eagles, considered a national natural treasure, were rescued in the Yaeyama Islands and immediately transported to the veterinary hospital at the Okinawa Zoo, where they are currently undergoing treatment. One of the birds was found on an Iriomote Island roadside on Feb. 3 with what appeared to be a broken wing. The other eagle was discovered trapped in a farmerís net on Ishigake Island on Feb. 4. Although there were no visible wounds, the bird was unable to fly. Three other crested serpent eagles have been brought into the hospital this year, one of which was released upon recovery. Approximately 200 crested serpent eagles inhabit Iriomote, Ishigake and Yonaguni islands.
