MEDORA, N.D. (AP) — Officials at Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota on Tuesday were releasing another golden eagle back into the wild.

The eagle was found near Bowman, thin and unable to fly. It was taken to Dakota Zoo in Bismarck for three months of rehabilitation. Park Superintendent Valerie Naylor says the park provides excellent habitat, and the eagle will have a good chance of survival.

Two golden eagles and a bald eagle were released in the park last March. Those birds also had gone through rehab at the Bismarck zoo.
