How she came to be flying over the nursing home is explained by the deep talon marks in her back and sides, showing she was probably the unwilling passenger of a hungry eagle that had picked her up but eventually found her 18 pounds too much to hold on to.
May, her ribs broken, her body lacerated, was found by nursing staff May 2 and delivered to the Sunshine Coast SPCA.
The fall injured her, says BC SPCA official Lorie Chortyk, but the whole unnerving ordeal likely saved her life.
May showed signs of longtime neglect, including rotted teeth and claws that were growing into her paw pads. She is recovering after medical intervention by the SPCA, but the Society needs donations to pay for her care. http://www.vancouversun.com/life/Hungry+eagle+inadvertently+swoops+poodle+away+better+life/4793134/story.html -via Arbroath
