"These creatures sure are strange, but they took good care of me."
Citizens found a wounded shah eagle in the rural area of Samandağ
district, Hayat province, on 13 March and turned the bird over to the
State Water Works 7th Regional Directorate. It was determined that
the eagle had been shot and could not fly so the bird was brought to
the Hatay Mustafa Kemal University Veterinary Faculty Clinic.
Veterinarians found a 'MA 1501' mark on the eagle's leg, which led
them to contact the Zoology Museum in Kaunas, Lithuania. Dr.
Cafer Tayer İşler told officials in Kaunas that as soon as the eagle
healed it would be set free.
After six weeks of treatment the eagle headed off on its interrupted
migratory sojourn from Africa to Europe.
