I just heard about the story pertaining to this bald eagle "Beauty". Her beak was shot off by a poacher. Fortunately, she has slowly been brought back to health, and is getting fitted for a prosthetic beak (not kidding). I really don't understand why people have to be so cruel and heartless. This animal is defenseless, they have just gotten off the endangered species list in the last however many years, and they are absolutely beautiful. I just see more and more stories about cruelty to animals (this, Michael Vick, The Kentucky Derby), and it just sickens me. I wish I could do something to help reduce the pain that animals have to go through due to heartless, stupid human beings!
