BAINBRIDGE — West Sound Wildlife, the only wildlife and education center in Western Puget Sound, will release a bald eagle on Jan. 13, 10 a.m.The release will take place on Bainbridge Island near the Wildlife Shelter.

According to shelter executive director Lisa Horn, the male bald eagle arrived at the center in October with injuries that were a result of a fight with another bald eagle. “Through the expert care by the staff and volunteers of the shelter, the eagle has healed and is ready to return to the wild,” Horn wrote.

In 2012, West Sound Wildlife Shelter cared for 1,003 animals in need of medical care. The West Sound Wildlife Shelter provides injured, orphaned and sick wild animals a second chance at life and promotes the well-being of wildlife through public outreach, education and involvement.
