Bald Eagle Dies After Being Hit By Car In Greenbrier County

GREENBRIER COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – WV DOH workers recently found a bald eagle that had been hit by a car.

The eagle was in the Harts Run area of Greenbrier County. The workers notified the district four office of the situation and that they had removed the eagle from the road so it would not be tampered with or taken.

D4 Officers transported the deceased eagle back to the district office. US Fish and Wildlife was contacted and they are currently making arrangements to take possession of the eagle.

Thanks to the DOH personnel, the eagle will be disposed of properly avoiding any possible exploitation had the eagle fallen into the wrong hands.
