We lost our Golden Eagle GE 05-20 today due to complications from osteomyelitis. It's not uncommon for a bone to become infected after a hard blunt force that causes an open or compound fracture where there is a complete disruption of the skin and or soft tissue with the bone protuding through. This developed very fast in this eagle. We tried, but unfortunately that was not enough. Pictures of the operation to place a pin in a few weeks ago are in the photo album under GE 05-20.
BE 05-30 was loged in yesterday. That's #30 eagle for the year. In 2004 we only had 32 eagles the whole year.
