Oregon Man Gives Bald Eagle Mouth-to-Beak Would You Give a Bird CPR?

In case you were wondering, mouth-to-beak CPR actually does work.

About a month ago, two La Pine women found an injured bald eagle, apparently hit by a car, near the Crane Prairie Reservoir in Central Oregon.

The eagle, now named Patriot, is about halfway through his hoped-for recovery period.

He has gained 10 percent of his body weight and is eating fish like crazy,” Cooney said Friday. “His attitude is greatly improved, and he’s starting to act like a normal, rambunctious bald eagle.”

But there are still worrisome signs.“The dislocated shoulder and his paralyzed right leg are his major problems right now,” Cooney said.

Then there was the frightening moment during Wednesday’s exam and physical therapy when, under anesthesia, Patriot stopped breathing.Cooney stepped in and performed “mouth to beak” resuscitation to get the bird breathing again.

Possibly mouth to nares instead, because mouth to beak could be dangerous if the bird was to clamp down while reviving.

Yes I would and I have to a pigeon. If there is anything that I can do I would. Then again the eagle had a broken leg and dislocated shoulder so he wouldn't be able to do much.

Now I wouldn't give CPR to a bear or a tiger or anything like that unless there were holding it down. LOL

Side: yes

If I was a trained professional and the conditions were right, yes I would. If it was a random bird, bald eagle or not and I had no training then I would want to help but am unable.

No, but I'm not a vet. I wouldn't artificially inseminate a cow, and that's because that is not in my job description.

True dat, I don't give a shit about America.


Side: No

Are you crazy? I wouldn't come within 10 feet of a bald eagle. That bird would destroy a human being.

You failed to mention that it was a veterinarian who performed the CPR, whom is a trained expert.

Side: No

Ummm, no.

Sure I'd want to help, but a Bald Eagle?!? How's a wild predator likely to react when it comes round, on its back, only to find itself staring down the back of your throat?!

Supporting Evidence: Now you see it, now you don't. (

I heard about Michael getting blind it is very sad because He tried to save the bird but the dog ran in cause the bird to rush at the Mans Eye.

Side: No
