Union Pacific employees in Stockton, California, made an unexpected discovery on Valentine’s Day. A Golden Eagle became trapped in locomotive No. 7426’s plow somewhere between Nebraska and California – and survived.

The employees called the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Game Wardens Brad Mello and Justin Cisneros came to the Stockton Yard to help. The team carefully dismantled the locomotive’s plow, piece by piece. When the last piece was removed, the eagle fell into a blanket. The warden quickly placed it inside an empty dog crate for safe transport.


Union Pacific employees cut foliage from nearby trees, ensuring the eagle was comfortable as possible. The bird was treated at Tri County Wildlife Care in Jackson, California, for minimal injuries and released back into the wild this morning."
