On June 9, 2016, the Tulsa (OK) Police Department located an injured bald eagle in the downtown area. The bald eagle, 1-2 years old, was found on the sidewalk and had likely flown into a building. The Tulsa Zoo was called and immediately began caring for the eagle.
The initial tests determined that the eagle had no fractures, but appeared to be in thin body condition.
After one week of treatment, the Tulsa Zoo announced that the eagle would be released and that officer that found the eagle would be releasing it.
Tulsa Police Officer J.D. Pyatt was one of the individuals who helped zoo staff capture the bird, so he was chosen to release the eagle back to the wild.
