Vandalism Impacts Bald Eagle at Chippewa Park

Crime News

THUNDER BAY – A senseless act of vandalism at Chippewa Park has resulted in the escape of one of the wildlife exhibit’s bald eagles.

Having lived in captivity for an extended period, it is expected the eagle will be in distress and may be found walking on the ground, especially in the vicinity of Chippewa Park. Residents are asked not to try to capture the bird as bald eagles can be very dangerous to handle, especially if stressed.

If residents find what they believe is the escaped eagle, contact the City’s 24-hour Dispatch at 625-2195 with a location so that Parks staff can try to recapture it.
