29-Year-Old Bald Eagle Dies At Columbus Zoo
A female bald eagle that contributed to the recovery of the iconic species has died at the Columbus zoo.
Columbus Zoo and Aquarium officials said Wednesday that 29-year-old Barbara died Monday after being found unresponsive with an irregular heartbeat. Tests showed an enlarged heart.
The bird was hatched in the wild in 1982 and came to the Columbus zoo in 1988 following reports she had attacked a Boy Scout on California’s Catalina Island.
Barbara and a male eagle named George raised 16 eaglets at the zoo during the 1990s. Officials say the offspring were released into the wild in Ohio, Tennessee, New York and Indiana.
