This Eagle Has Flown
A six-foot tall wooden eagle has landed, and Stella McDonald would like to know where.
The eagle, a fixture at McDonald's Whispering Pines home on Shadow Drive for 22 years, disappeared Sunday morning, she said. She isn't even really asking where it is, she is more concerned that whoever took it, bring it back.
"It's been like a landmark for our neighborhood," she said. "It had to take at least two or three people, using a truck or trailer to take it. I just want it back."
McDonald brought the then 12-foot tall eagle, made out of solid heart of pine, from two brothers in Pennsylvania those many years ago. After several years, and several other attempts to steal it, termites started to eat away at the bottom of the eagle, forcing McDowell to cut the figure down to about six feet in length.
She secured it in a concrete pad after the attempts to steal it. She has informed law enforcement about the stolen eagle, and she is hoping someone will come forward with some information. But she isn't even that concerned about the culprit or culprits being caught. She simply wants her eagle back.
"He is missing and I miss him," she said. "I hope it at least comes back the same way it got gone."
