(DUBOIS CO.) - A bald eagle found badly injured in Dubois County will be headed to his new home at the Detroit Zoo.

The eagle has been recovering at the home wildlife rescuer Angel Lange since he was found injured in Dubois County with a badly broken wing.

Lange says the wing had to be amputated. Officials believe the bird was hurt by flying into a power line.

Lange says the eagle he's named Mr. America has recovered well from the surgery.

Federal law allows an eagle to remain in a rescuer's care only 180 days before it must be released or moved to a permanent home.
