(KJRH) — Tuesday is a big day for the Tulsa Zoo.

After months of treatment, the zoo will release a rescued bald eagle back into the wild.

The bird was shot with a shotgun last fall in Delaware County. Someone took it to the Wild Heart Ranch, who then took it to the Tulsa Zoo.

“We feel very lucky and we feel very privileged to be able to return her to the sky and give her a chance to live in the wild,” Dr. Kay Backues with the Tulsa Zoo said.
