ARLINGTON—A bald eagle that got tangled up in a rope is free again.
The eagle was released back into the wild Tuesday afternoon.
Last week, the bird was freed by neighbors and animal experts after it became tangled in a nylon rope while hunting for a duck.
The eagle has spent the last week at the Sarvey Wildlife Center in Arlington and now it's likely homeward bound, whereever home might be for the animal.
Raptor Bird Specialist Tim Brown says it's great to see birds like this get released.
"It's a nice feeling, you see these birds, boost their population," he said.
The eagle was released in the same spot it was found tangled in the rope.
Experts expect the bird to make a full recovery and live life normally.
