Libby Strizzi alerted me to this heart-warming video about a severely injured bald eagle who got a chance at a better life.
Beauty lost her upper beak when she was shot in the face by a poacher. This 2008 video shows the first of many steps in restoring her missing beak.
The video has been popular on the Internet this month, but current news of Beauty is hard to find because the original website at Birds of Prey Northwest has been inundated by recent web traffic.
Though we don’t know how Beauty’s doing today, the film is full of hope.
