New Hampshire State Trooper Kevin Dobson is our hero of the day! Trooper Dobson is working hard to keep the people of New Hampshire safe as well as our beloved animals. You might recognize Trooper Dobson from his appearance on the Animal Planet show North Woods Law. He's pretty much a local celeb.

On Sunday, a bald eagle was struck by a vehicle on I-95 in Portsmouth. Trooper Dobson rescued the bird and called NH Fish and Game to help. There is no immediate update of the bird's condition but we are hoping for the best!

Bald eagles are legally protected in our fair state of New Hampshire. Possession and harming, harassing, injuring or killing the species is illegal.
