Bald Eagle Saved by Oregon Vet's Mouth-to-Beak CPR

job interview - A Bend, Ore., veterinarian has performed life-saving CPR on an injured bald eagle that was under anesthesia during physical therapy.

KTVZ-TV reports that Jeff Cooney performed the therapy, during which the bald eagle nicknamed "Patriot" stopped breathing. Cooney's "mouth to beak" resuscitation got the eagle breathing again.

The injured eagle was found by two La Pine, Ore., women near Crane Prairie Reservoir in June. The eagle had suffered, among other injuries, a dislocated shoulder and paralyzed right leg.

Cooney says it's uncertain whether he will be able to return the bird to the wild. If the bird's foot doesn't improve in the next three weeks, Cooney says that he could be forced to euthanize him.

They can put the bird in a sanctuary. I volunteer at a wildlife center, and those kinds of things happen often. Please try!

Doesn't Oregon have a Wildlife Sanctuary so they don't have to euthanize but can keep them for teaching and have people see them up close. Virginia has one and they never euthanize unless it is absolutely necessary
