These Brothers Rescued A Bald Eagle #TheyTookASelfie

This story will move you…

It isn’t everyday that you see this type of animal rescue.  Hunting traps are a controversial topic although no one intends them to catch eagles.  And that is just what happened while these brothers found one:

Michael and Neil Fletcher were hunting together nearby Ontario’s Windy Lake last Tuesday when they stumbled across the bald eagle caught in a hunting trap. They tried to free it, but the fearsome aerial predator wasn’t being particularly cooperative.

“When we got close to the bird, it tried to fly away. So I took my hoodie off and put it around its head, it calmed it right down,” Michael Fletcher told NBC News. While they kept it calm, the trap was slowly pried open.

They did the right thing in being calm and moving slowly.  And to boot they took an awesome selfie!

Congrats to the brothers for doing a good deed!
