Terry goes viral

Feb 18, 2014 | Raptor Center

My son brought this image to my attention last Saturday.  Marcel thought it looked like my friend Terry.  We then set out for a bit of detective work to see where it came from.

Terry & baeg

Last week, an image of Terry appeared on a site called imgur.com > ttp://imgur.com/gallery/ISD1BlT

The source was listed as Reddit.com > http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/1xo7kt/a_bald_eagle_with_a_broken_wing_being_rescued_in/

We wondered where had the original image had come from and discovered it had been posted on Wired.com April 2013 > http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2013/04/this-week-in-wild-animals_1/

Wired had found it on a local site in Mora:  (The original)


The photographer was Kirsten Blake of the Kanabec County Times

After we found the original, we went back and asked Google where else it appears on the net and found it in numerous other places including petslady.com, birdcontrolnews.com and whitewolfpack.com. It is also posted all over Facebook.

Fun to see how an image floats around the internet.
