During our trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains, we visited a wildlife sanctuary on Grandfather Mountain. The sanctuary is home to river otters, mountain lions, black bears, whitetail deer, and eagles. The Golden Eagle was injured by gunfire out West and had to have part of one wing amputated. He has been at the sanctuary since 1984 and they estimate his age to be 40 years plus. The resident Bald Eagle at the sanctuary died in 2010 at the age of 29.
