“Trust,” The Bald Eagle Rescued by MCPD in March is Flying Free This July 4th

July 4, 2016

The Bald Eagle that was rescued by Montgomery County Police after it was allegedly hit by a car on River Road in Potomac back in March has been completely rehabilitated and has been released back into the wild.

   The announcement that the Bald Eagle named “Trust,” is has been returned to the wild came on the Facebook page of the Boyds-based Owl Moon Raptor Center.

   “As to the status of ‘Trust’, the mature female bald eagle presumably hit by a car on River Road in Potomac in early March. I am pleased to report that Trust has recovered fully from her fractured coracoid, and is once more flying free over the Potomac River,” said the Facebook post on July 4th.

   The eagle was discovered by a resident near River Road and Riverwood Drive on the morning of March 4 in Potomac. Montgomery County Police Officer Jennifer Gill responded to the call along with Maryland Department of Natural Resources Officer Danny Thomas. Officer Gill named the eagle Trust.

   The Owl Moon Raptor Center has also recently released another young male Bald Eagle, this one was found struggling to free itself after becoming entangled in a soccer net at Severn School in Arnold, Md., according to the Facebook post. “He is currently under the watchful eye of Severn School staff, teachers, and campers, who are being careful to take down the soccer nets between games, now that they know the hazard these nets can be for local wildlife,” said the post.
