Gus, a male Golden Eagle, hatched in 2005. He was recovered from his nest by WY Game and Fish when a rancher noticed that he didn’t fledge at the same time as his sibling. Due to either an injury or a birth defect, Gus has a permanent impairment to his right wing and has never been able to fly. In 2007, Gus was transferred to TRC to be an ambassador for his species.
