SAUK PRAIRIE, Wis. — A Wisconsin group is set to release several bald eagles back into the wild on Saturday.

In a Facebook post, Raptor Education Group, Inc. said three or four eagles will be released back into the wild after their original release was postponed due to poor weather conditions.

The eagles are set to be released at Veteran Memorial Park in Sauk Prairie at 1 p.m.

A recent graphic from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources shows that eagle populations throughout the state have made a major recovery over the past few decades, partly because of extra efforts from animal protection groups.
