31 January, 2020

A Bonelli's eagle (Aquila fasciata) was found with neurological clinical signs in the Jordan valley. The eagle had a transmitter so it could be found that on 1 January 2020 he entered the Jordan valley from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and from then, he stayed in the Jordan valley, in the Israeli side. The eagle was brought alive to the Wildlife hospital in the "Ramat-Gan Safari" (A big Zoo near Tel Aviv) and was put Updatethere in quarantine.
