Gloucester County, Va. - A bald eagle rescued from Gloucester County is now healthy enough to be released.

The eagle was found back in March.

The bird was unable to fly very far and was suffering from lead poisoning.

Over the past month and a half, the bird has gotten stronger at the Wildlife Center.

It was released at Beaverdam Park in Gloucester County.
