dc.description.abstractThis news item is about: Two local raptors made unexpected recoveries this month after exposure to common and deadly manmade toxins—lead and rodenticide. “These two cases represent extremely fortunate birds,” said Sara Childs-Sanford, chief of service at the Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Health Center. “Many, many more die in the wild without anyone knowing.” The patients, a bald eagle and a northern harrier, were found lethargic and unable to fly, each suffering from acute poisoning from different manmade contaminants that nearly cost them their lives.
