WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Earlier this month, a local wildlife sanctuary rescued a bald eagle near Mosquito Lake.

Tragically, that eagle has died.

Birds of Flight Sanctuary, which rescued the eagle, posted on its Facebook page Friday to say that the bird had passed away.

According to the rescue group, X-rays showed lead inside its stomach.

The sanctuary says it’s working on getting a lead test machine so they can test birds in-house and not wait seven to 10 days to get results.
