Mountie and a bald eagle rescuer; Logan Lake, This Is What We Do

Logan Lake, BC – When you sign on with the Mounties, you truly never know what the shift ahead will deliver and rarely is any call too small for an RCMP officer to respond to, especially when you police in a small community.

On June 30 Logan Lake RCMP officers were alerted to an injured bald eagle on the side of roadway near Mammette Lake Road and Foley Road. When the Cst. Dell arrived he found the bird appeared to unable or unwilling to leave the area.

Concerned for the bird’s well-being, the officer borrowed a dog crate from a cell-guard and with assistance from another RCMP officer, captured the bird.

The eagle was taken to the detachment cells where it was cared for overnight. The following morning the bald eagle was transferred to the BC Wildlife Park Rehabilitation facility in Kamloops, where it remains.

Cst. Dell, acting Detachment Commander for the Logan Lake RCMP says, “As a Mountie, you wear many hats, some days you are a career counsellor or a conflict mediator, other days a traffic enforcer or a homicide investigator, some days you are an animal wrangler. Whatever the call, we take them all!”
