Memphis veterinarians helped nurse a bald eagle.

An expert with Memphis Veterinary Specialists said the bird came in from North Mississippi and was only able to fly short distances because of damage to its right wing.

They said the bird had subluxation in its right thoracic girdle.

Further treatment for the eagle will include cage rest and physical therapy. They hope to release him back into the wild in four to six weeks.
