This is my friend McGwire the Eagle. He is a rehabilitated eagle at our World Bird Sanctuary. He is blind in one eye and can not be release.

Forgive the naivete but what does "cannot be released mean"? It looks like he's outside and could fly off? Just curious.

Thank You

When he was brought to the World Bird Sanctuary he was very under weight and had a bad eye injury which left him blind in that eye. It was determined that he was unreleasable due to his limited sight and the fact that he had become imprinted on humans because of the intense medical treatment he had required. He has been at the WBS since 1998. Since being with his trainers for such a long time he is unlikely to fly away, plus he is tether for his safety.
