Dollywood home to eagle hatchlings

By: AP, staff reports

PIGEON FORGE (AP) — Three baby eaglets have hatched in Dollywood’s Eagle Mountain Sanctuary.
Workers at the aviary had not been certain the parents had produced eggs until the fuzzy hatchlings popped out last week.
The aviary houses eagles that can’t be released into the wild, but the hatchlings will be set free.
The nonprofit American Eagle Foundation runs the sanctuary. Foundation president Al Cecere said the eaglets will be released into foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains when they are 13-weeks old.
