Eagle Flys to Freedom


November 16, 2017

Pamela Flory of Fairbanks releases one of two juvenile bald eagles November 11 as part of the American Bald Eagle Festival. Flory's high bid of $550 at a live auction won her the opportunity to release the eagle. Both eagles were rehabilitated at the Bird Treatment and Learning Center in Anchorage. The release ceremony included a speech by Lani Hotch and a performance by the Chilkat Dancers. About 100 residents and visitors turned out for the event. Jane Pascoe photo.
