A Philippine hawk eagle found in Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya was turned over to the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office Baguio.

Eleno Lao-ing, with children Roldan and Grace Lao-ing, went to the office of Mayor Mauricio Domogan on April 10 to report that they found an eagle.

Eleno narrated that his family was on their way home to Baguio from Kalinga via the Kapaya, Nueva Vizcaya on the night of April 7 when suddenly the headlights of their vehicle bumped to what they thought was a stone.

However, when Roldan went out of the vehicle to check the headlight, he was surprised to see an eagle lying on the street.

Roldan struggled to get the eagle in order to check its condition.

Since it was a weekend and aware keeping endangered species is prohibited, the Lao-ing family took care and fed the eagle with chicken’s intestines until Monday and went to report the incident to City Mayor’s Office.

In the presence of the Lao-ing family, executive assistant Rafael Tallocoy turned over the eagle to Ecosystem Management Specialist Northemia Jarligao of Cenro Jarligao thanked the Lao-ing family for their concern  and  for turning over the eagle to authorities.

She said the eagle underwent a series of medical evaluation and assessment before the same was released to its natural habitat.

“The Philippine eagle is protected by Philippine laws. Hunting, collecting, and trading Philippine eagle is punishable by fine and imprisonment,” Jarligao said.

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature placed the Philippine eagle on the list of critically endangered species in 2008, thus body called on the national government to conserve and protect the same.
