Kenai was found alongside a road in southern Washington in January 2000. She was most likely hit by a car which caused an open fracture of her left wrist. Unfortunately, the exposed bones were badly fragmented and ultimately died, resulting in the amputation of her wing tip. Kenai spent some time with an education program in Klamath Falls before coming to the Cascades Raptor Center in January 2003.
