The eagle in Kusapín was rescued thanks to an anonymous report from the citizens, who said a harpy eagle was held captive in a house.
Upon arrival, members of the National Police and the National Environmental Authority (ANAM) realized the eagle was kept captive in a wooden box.
Later, it was given to the ANAM park rangers and taken to the city, where it received veterinary care.
The eagle recovered from Chocolatal was found on the floor by some local farmers, who kept the eagle for eight days in their home.
Even though they were feeding it with chicken meat, the animal seemed undernourished and exhausted, probably due to the long distance travelled on horseback until Chocolatal, said Agustín Corrales, ANAM’s Regional Administrator. (Prensa)
