    Brothers Michael and Neil Fletcher found a bald eagle stuck in a trap near Windy Lake in Ontario, Canada, which tried to fly away when the two men approached. Michael and Neal wrapped a jacket around the eagle to calm it down, and then managed to free its talon.





    Before leaving the eagle to fly away, the Fletcher’s decided to take a quick photo with the rare animal. The result is one of the greatest selfies ever taken. Neither man will have to pick a new profile picture for the rest of their lives.

    No word on whether or not they thanked the bird. :rs:

    If that happened here instead of Canada, someone from the government would probably fine them for handling it themselves rather than notifying the proper authorities.

    Right, because Canada is not like known for being like socialized or anything. And the govt is way more hands off up there than our govt. It's a libertarian paradise!

    That was what you going for, right? Some weak, hyperbolic attempt to whine about the US govt controlling your every movement?

    awesome


    Shocking they were able to rescue a freakin eagle without a team of servants or a red carpet fund raiser in Manhattan.

    Hopefully that eagle kills a bunch of voles and drops their carcasses off in the Hamptons.

    So they are supporting Lever and his daughter. Perhaps Lever has a can of beets and some old socks they donated to a local charity.

    People here have been prosecuted for picking up and possessing a loose feather from protected birds. So not that unreasonable of a statement.
