On July 16, a juvenile bald eagle named Roosevelt took flight, soaring into the sky after being released by a team of College of Veterinary Medicine staff members. Roosevelt was treated for two months at UF’s Small Animal Hospital after being found unable to fly. She subsequently underwent rehabilitation at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland. When she was deemed ready, Audubon representatives drove Roosevelt back to Gainesville, where she was successfully released back to her original environment.
