"The bird is alive and was turned over to the B.E.A.K.S. Wildlife Sanctuary," the Clay County Sheriff's Office reported on Facebook. "Great job by all involved."
Owner of the bird sanctuary, Cynthia Mosling, told CNN the eagle doesn't appear to have any serious injuries and is standing up, alert and walking around. She believes the eagle is a mature male, at least seven years old.
Mosling and her colleagues named the bird "Matthew" after the hurricane that recently passed through Florida. Matthew will be released after being nursed back to full health.
