Adonis the handi-capable eagle

I was visiting Alaska as I do a couple of times a year and decided to visit the Wildlife Center outside of Anchorage. There I saw bears and moose and all kinds of cool wildlife. Then I came around the back of the gift shop and met Adonis, an American Bald Eagle. One of his wings had to be amputated because some not very nice person shot him in or around a remote village in Alaska. He has been at the refuge for a very long time.
