Eagle injured by transmission line

An  eagle has been injured at the transmission line crossing the Minnesota River — where CapX 2020’s Brookings-Hampton routing permit said it could cross.

Just in, from the Belle Plaine Police Department’s Facebook page:

Thank you to City Council member Cary Coop for notifying us of an injured eagle that had struck some power lines, by the Minnesota River about 1/4 mile west of the Highway 25 bridge. We were able to respond with him and locate the eagle which appeared to be breathing, but seriously injured. Critter Getters was called to respond and we assisted in transporting the eagle through the woods and to awaiting transport. The eagle was brought to the Raptor Center for care. I just received word that they will be able to rehabilitate the eagle and it will make a full recovery. To us this is important, as we wear the symbol of the eagles wings on all our badges which stand for freedom and justice and the readiness to defend it for all.
