OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Phoenix, a 5-year-old golden eagle, leaps from perch to perch in his enclosure. He does it with a brace on his left foot. On June 21, 2012, Phoenix was critically injured in the Saratoga Springs Utah Dump Fire. Too young to fly, Phoenix suffered third-degree burns. Kent Keller, a licensed Utah eagle bander, found the badly burned eagle chick and took him to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah. The Standard-Examiner reports the center is keeping Phoenix as an educational bird.
