Donations sought to pay for eagle’s cataract surgery
Jul. 8—Dyami is one of three ambassador bald eagles at New Mexico Wildlife Center and needs cataract surgery on his right eye.
He has an injured wing and has been at the Española center since 2017 when he was shipped from the Wildlife Center of Virginia.
He has a cataract in his left eye and the facility’s veterinarian discovered another one developing in the right eye.
Dyami was examined by Dr. Nancy McLean, a veterinary ophthalmologist in Albuquerque with experience in avian ophthalmology and surgery, to determine his treatment options. She thinks Dyami can be helped with an operation.
The center is seeking help covering the cost, which is estimated at more than $4,000.
