HAMILTON COUNTY (WSIL) -- A symbol of our nation is safe and recovering, thanks to the help of some Good Samaritans in Hamilton County.
Sheriff Tracy Lakin says Jim McPeak and Jeremy Owen found a young bald eagle Wednesday with a broken wing.
The Good Samaritans called the Sheriff's Department who took the bird to a conservation officer from the IDNR.
Lakin says he thought the bird may have hit some power lines and fell.
The sheriff tells News 3 he's not sure exactly how long it will take before that bird is ready to fly again, but says he's in good hands while he gets nursed back to health.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
