DEERFIELD, N.Y. -- A bald eagle with a broken wing was rescued by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and a Good Samaritan.
According to the DEC's Facebook page, snowmobilers spotted the eagle in the town of Deerfield and called it into the DEC.
Environmental Conservation Officer Jeff Hull arrived and climbed 70 feet down to 9-Mile Creek, alongside snowmobiler Bill Hajdasz.
The two, together, were able to corner the bird and rescue it.
They say the eagle was taken to a wildlife rehabilitator in Utica.
