Eagle story (1)TWO eagles will miss out on spending Valentine’s Day in their Antequera love nest after they were captured.

A twenty-person team of environmentalists used bait and a ladder to snare the South American Harris eagles that had set up camp in a tree and ‘lightly injured’ two locals.

The birds had fled from their owners several months ago and were preparing a nest for chicks in a pine tree in Calle Ruy Lopez.  

The Junta will care for the feathered friends until their owners are located.
