MENOMONIE, Wis. (WSAU-Wheeler) -- A couple towing a boat on Interstate 94 discovered an unusual stowaway.

The Minnesota couple says a bald eagle crashed through the shrink wrap of their boat, while they crossed the Red Cedar River near Menomonie. The couple originally thought the bird escaped, but later discovered it in the boat.

The bald eagle was taken to a wildlife rehabilitation center in Colfax, where officials say it will be released into the wild when it’s fully recovered.
