Rescued Eagle Chicks Getting ‘Feisty’

Two bald eagle chicks that were rescued from Lake Oahe are said to be growing and getting “feisty.”
Pierre veterinarian Virginia Trexler-Myren is caring for the eaglets for now.
Wildlife officials rescued them when the rising level of the lake threatened to flood the nest. It was build in a dead tree standing in the lake near Akaska in northern South Dakota.
The adult eagles had abandoned the nest, possibly because of the disturbance from boaters who had found it.
Veterinarian Trexler-Myren says the chicks will go next to a large wildlife center and hopefully be released later into the wild.
