A bald eagle has had its broken beak fixed with a filling by a dentist. In a first of its kind operation a dentist applied putty used to fill holes in human teeth to repair Cyrano the eagle’s top beak.The bird of prey had lost almost all of it after catching it in heavy duty fishing line somewhere off the Alaskan coast. With the circulation cut off and the grinding effect of the line a massive hole developed which had stopped him from hunting.In a few weeks vets suspected further wear would have snapped off the beak completely leading to certain death in the wild.Cyrano was rescued and taken to the Bird Treatment and Learning Centre (BTLC), in Anchorage, Alaska, USA.
