A bald eagle was sighted in the brush by Kenai, a 3-year-old golden retriever.
Man’s best friend is his dog. They are the most devoted, loyal and protective creatures on the planet. As you will see, these functions are useful for a wide range of creatures.
Kerry Burns and Pam Webber walked along the Sucker River where it flows into Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota. Kenai, Burns’ dog, started barking at that moment.
Kenai, a three-year-old golden retriever, saw a bald eagle in the bushes. The dog continued to bark.
“The eagle flew out of the bushes and soon came down to the shore,” Burns added.
“Fortunately, he was taught to herd animals. He stopped barking after he informed me and I noticed what he was looking at.”
He also suffered a shoulder injury. Upon further examination, the animal showed signs of lead poisoning.
The staff offered fluids and painkillers to the eagle because they believed the injury could be healed.
Burns and Weber then took the injured eagle to the University of Minnesota Predator Center in St. Paul.
