Moose, a female bald eagle captured in Yellowstone National Park in 1994, was the star of the Mr. and Mrs. F.L. Schlagle Eagle Day demonstrations Saturday. Moose, who weighs 17 pounds, was picked up after she had eaten a poisoned gopher. She broke her wing and shoulder and although the injuries have healed she can't extend her wings fully and thus flies in circles.
