Martha the Eagle Mate to George is Euthanized After Injury
Martha & George
Martha the Eagle became famous because of an attack by a hussy, homewrecking strumpet eagle competing for her mate, George. Martha was rescued and rehabilitated by federal and state officials. It is tragic that Martha survived the attack, lost two eaglets because of her absence, was reunited with George at the Potomac River nest and now this terrible accidental injury ends her life. She was euthanized at a bird rehabilitation center in Delaware. We are saddened by this tragic end to this fairy tale. (Wash Post)
