Later seen and recaptured near her release site with one leg hanging down (found to have been broken and set). She was rereleased after healing only to be found several weeks later, uninjured but weak and hungry. She was then cared for by a rehabber who reportedly hand fed her, making her next release unsuccessful and was found going to humans for food. After this final recapture she was deemed non-releasable due to imprinting on humans. She was acquired by the Minnesota Zoo in 1993, serving as a program/education bird. Due to arthritis, she had become uncomfortable with the daily handling associated with being a program bird required and MN Zoo wanted to find a situation for her where she could move around as she wishes. So she moved to the Indianapolis Zoo in 2015 where being out on exhibit is an exciting new experience for her. 6   Photo by Fred Cate  Tempest January 9, 1985 Female Resources 1 BirdLife International. 2016.
