A bald eagle found injured on state Highway 14 on Tuesday was treated in Portland at a wildlife care center.The bald eagle has a fractured wing and damage to one of its eyes, said Lacy Campbell, manager of the care center at Audubon Society of Portland.Campbell said the injuries appear consistent with what typically happens in eagle-versus-vehicle collisions, and they appear to be recent.“Fractured wings are not too problematic,” she said. “But we don’t know if there’s internal damage.”Washington State Patrol responded to reports of the injured bald eagle walking on or near the highway around 9:30 a.m. The eagle was unable to fly, troopers said.Passers-by guided the eagle off to the shoulder of the eastbound lanes of the highway near Southeast Ellsworth Road. The Audubon Society picked it up.The wildlife caretakers in Portland wrapped the eagle’s damaged wing and gave it pain medication. For now, they’re trying to leave the bird alone.
