UPDATE: Bald eagle missing from bird rehabilitation center found safe on property

Animals and Wildlife

ASHFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — An Ashford bird rehabilitation center is breathing a sigh of relief after finding one of their bald eagles that went missing earlier this week.

The rehabilitation center says they found Atka safe on their property Tuesday morning. He went missing on Monday.

They were raising reward money and were offering around $4,000 to anyone who would have helped bring Atka home.

They are still investigating how Atka went missing. He can’t fly, so they say he couldn’t have gone too far on his own.

Anyone with information is asked to call DEEP 860-424-3333 or Ct State Police Troop C 860-896-3200
