There is nothing more comforting to the human spirit than doing good, especially when helping the most vulnerable beings who have been subjected to the worst treatment at the hands of humanity, for practically their entire lives.
One of the species that has been most affected by man is the emblematic bald eagles that, for a long time, had to stop soaring through the skies to take shelter in the most desolate places and thus be able to save their lives.
Little by little, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, many animals have felt enough confidence to go back out and regain their natural habitat. However, they still need the help of good people in certain situations.
Bald eagles can grow up to 2.5 meters tall
As did a police officer named Bryan Whalen, in Orange County, on March 17, while doing his usual patrol during the area.
Unexpectedly, a driver came across a terrible scene: a bald eagle was in bad shape, on ST-17 street in Blooming Grove. Without hesitation, she asked Police Officer Bryan for help and he was immediately on the scene.
An animal protection association called Warwick Valley Animal Rescue also arrived at the site to assist the imposing bird. But, it was crucial to come into contact with the animal, without being scared, in order to rescue it.
That’s what Officer Whalen took care of. He prepared to get as friendly as possible to the eagle, to let him know that he did not want to harm him and, gaining his trust, managed to insert it into a box so that it could be transported safely.
The work of this good officer helping the eagle, despite not having specialized training in it, has not gone unnoticed in his department and not by thousands of people. He has been hailed as a hero without a cape.
“A job well done by Officer Whalen!” Acknowledged the police department where the officer works.
Subsequently, it was the officer of the Department of Environmental Conservation Officer, Nicole Duchene, who transported the eagle to a rehabilitation facility located in New Paltz, approximately 30 miles away.
The eagle will remain in the aforementioned department until it fully recovers and can safely return to its natural habitat, having verified that more good people are trying to make a better world for all living beings.
Many bald eagles have lost their lives unfairly, it is time to change so that they can be free
“I hope that actions like these motivate everyone to help, I would do it for the animals!” Said a netizen.
There is no doubt that, together, we can make great changes that benefit Nature and all humanity in general.
It helps to create awareness, so that more people dare to be friends with Nature. Don’t leave without sharing.
