Protrack Anti Poaching Unit's Abre leant a helping hand, taking a young Wahlberg's Eagle, who seemed to have been poisoned, to the Hoedspruit vet.
Since then it has been determined that it was not poisoned, but perhaps just a very yourng bird who was "struggling to make it in the wild". The raptor has now been transferred to a rehabilitation centre in Hoedspruit and Protrack will keep us updated as they get information on the bird's progress.
