Game Warden Steve Allarie along with Litchfield and Gardiner firefighters responded to a call of two eagles that became entangled on a tree while brawling in Litchfield.

They were preparing to climb up and remove the birds when they broke free.

 One eagle flew away and the authorities rescued the other following a foot chase through the woods after it fell to the ground.

 Allarie said eagle is being  evaluated at Avian Haven in Freedom for injuries sustained during the fight and appears to be doing well.

 The banded bird will be released upon recovery, he said. “The bird is getting its strength back,” he said. “I’m fairly confident we’ll be releasing it back into the wild.”
