Brothers Help Free a Bald Eagle Stuck in a Hunting Trap. What They Did Afterwards Was Epic.

When it comes to birds, there are none as majestic and fearless as an eagle. When two brothers in Sudbury, Ontario, were out hunting, they noticed a bald eagle stuck in a small game trap. Neil Fletcher and his brother Michael initially knew an animal was in trouble as they saw ravens circling around the area.

The eagle had its talons stuck in one the traps so the brothers tried to calm the bird by wrapping their jacket around it so they could pry the trap open and release it from the trap. Thankfully, the bird remained calm as they freed the bird from the hunting trap and even managed to take an epic selfie before releasing the eagle back into the wild.
