Two 14-week-old AMERICAN bald eagles named by teen pop sensation MILEY CYRUS and her Country singer father BILLY RAY CYRUS will be set free into the wild today (7/24).
The eagles, named HOPE (after MILEY's given middle name before she legally changed it) and TENNESSEE (after the CYRUS family's home state), will be set free from DOLLY PARTON's DOLLYWOOD theme park in PIGEON FORGE, TN and into the foothills of the GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS.
The famous father-daughter duo will not be there in person to watch their release, but AMERICAN EAGLE FOUNDATION President AL CECERE says there will be plenty of their fans present to witness the eagles take flight.
The bald eagle, once on the brink of extinction, was removed from the endangered species list last year. More than 90 eagles have been released from DOLLYWOOD since the 1990s.
