Edith Regalado - The Philippine Star

DAVAO CITY, Philippines — A juvenile Philippine eaglet was found dead on Tuesday at the Philippine Eagle Center (PEC) in Barangay Malagos, Calinan District in this city.

Dennis Salvador, PEC executive director, said the remains of the eaglet, the latest to be bred in captivity, was found on the floor of its enclosure.

Footage of a closed-circuit television camera showed a python attacking the bird shortly after midnight on the same day.

Salvador said steps are being taken to capture the snake. He said the walls of enclosures at the PEC have been snake-proofed with a layer of wire mesh added to the original cyclone wire.
