Alaskan Eagles III
VOLTA - Concerned Sitkans called the ARRC after seeing an eagle fly into a power line (hence the name Volta) running parallel to a beach in Sitka, Alaska. Suffering primarily from concussion related injuries, Volta also sustained temporary damage to an eye and one wing. During Volta's rehabilitation, they discovered a shoulder injury which limits his flight ability. This injury makes Volta unreleasable.
