75.White-tailed Eagle rescued by police. Germany, July 2017

According to the article, the raptor, unable to fly, was found on a railway line in the district Segeberg.
04 July 2017 http://www.focus.de/regional/bundespoli ... 14663.html

Update, 05 July: The eagle has probably internal injuries but no broken bones.
https://www.shz.de/lokales/holsteinisch ... 18921.html

White-tailed Eagles are attracted to railway lines and streets to scavenge on animals killed by trains or cars. In Germany, such collisions are one of the most significant causes of death: “When feeding on animal carcasses lying on the railway, White-tailed Sea Eagles collide directly with the train or are sucked by the air stream into the train” (Gefährdungsursachen des Seeadlers (Haliaeetus albicilla L. 1758), Oliver Krone, Norbert Kenntner & Frieda Tartaruch, Denisia 27 (2009): 139–146).
