Federal wildlife officials have released two rehabilitated golden eagles back into the wild in northeastern South Dakota.

The eagles that were sickened by parasites, infections and malnutrition were brought to the Oahe Wildlife Center in Pierre in July, and brought back to good health. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released them into the wild at the Sand Lake National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday.

About 400 people turned out to watch.
