Two Golden Eagles that have been rehabilitated for the last year were released Sunday at Utah's Dead Horse Point State Park.

"They came in within days of each other," said Debbie Pappas of Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation.

The two birds, a male and female, are both about a year old. One of the birds was discovered in Carbon County and the other on Highway 191 near the Moab Airport.

"We got a dispatch call about an eagle that was trying to get itself onto the roadway," said trooper Brian Evans, Utah Highway Patrol. "He didn't look too well."

The bird had been hit by a car. Not knowing what to do, Evans called Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation.
