CONNECTICUT (WABC) -- A bald eagle found itself stuck in some serious traffic Saturday afternoon.
The downed bird of prey had landed in the center median of I-84 on the Tolland/Vernon line in Connecticut.
The responding troopers slowed traffic down and made their way to the median to try to coax the bird to the right shoulder of the interstate.
When the eagle wouldn't budge they decided call in Troop C Dispatcher Gambacorta, who serves as a local Animal Control officer and helped to rescue the eagle.
Dispatcher Gambacorta and Troopers successfully transferred the bald eagle to the Horizon Wings Raptor Rehabilitation in Ashford.
