‘s first steps This week’s wild animal highlights captured in photos: adorable yet fierce felines, fighting male horses, and a young rhinoceros taking its first steps.
Last month, Merrick, a golden eagle, went missing from its usual habitat in the Scottish borders. According to authorities, they suspect that the bird may have been harmed and are treating its disappearance as suspicious. Merrick was under the care of the South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project, which has successfully increased the local population of golden eagles by four times within six years. Michael Clarke, the project’s chair, expressed shock, disappointment, and sadness over Merrick’s disappearance, stating that the project’s translocated eagles have won the hearts and minds of many people, including children. If anyone has any information about Merrick, they are encouraged to reach out to Police Scotland.
