MEDORA, N.D. (AP) — Two golden eagles and a bald eagle that were rehabilitated at a Bismarck zoo have been released into the wild at Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

Dakota Zoo worked with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to nurse the birds to health. One had been shot, one had been suffering from what was believed to be West Nile virus and one had been recovered by wildlife officials too immature to survive on its own.

The Dickinson Press reports that the eagles were released Thursday in Wind Canyon in the western North Dakota park. They flew to nearby buttes and rested near a herd of buffalo.
