Ukraine - Rehab For Wild Ones: Helping an eagle fly again: UKRAINE TODAY

Published on 7 Jun 2016
A new treatment and recovery facility is now open in western Ukraine. But... its patients aren't whom you would think of right away. Getting healthy again is the priority for these wild animals, most of whom are listed in the Red Book of Endangered Species.

Halych National Nature Park located in western Ukraine is set to become the new home of two eagles and buzzards.

The birds all have a reason to come here. All of them fell victim to street photographers seeking quick cash from unsuspecting tourists. In an unprecedented court case launched by the Halych National Nature Park staff, the judge ruled against the photographers ordering the birds to be immediately confiscated and sent to the rehabilitation facility.
