> A golden eagle hunts in the Porcupine Hills west of
> Claresholm on Monday June 12, 2017.
> Messer said it's unusual for a golden eagle to be found in

> Volunteers did a physical exam on the eagle when it
> arrived at the centre, but did not find any obvious injuries.
> "Its body condition was good. Its feather condition was
> good and it was pretty feisty, and all those things would
> indicate to us that whatever happened to it was fairly recent,"
> said Messer.
> "If you're able to pick up a wild animal there's
