These guys were out to grab some some trophy catches, but they ended up with a whole different sort of trophy!
The two anglers cast their line and somehow landed a distressed Bald Eagle caught in the water. The eagle who had no idea whether it would make it through the day was in dire need of help and these guys sprung into action.
Initially the Eagle was understandably, scared and confused by the two men wanting to help, even attempting to flee after they unhooked him. The poor creature tries over and over again to take off from the water but just cant seem to lift himself out of the water.
The Eagle was soaked and was far too heavy to take off”
After chasing the bird down, they finally get him on board to give him the help they need. They dried his wings and helped him recuperate, the eagle even let them spoon feed it!
The guy holding the bird itself was incredibly brave and definitely lucky the eagle was vulnerable and too tired to resist help, because it could of done some serious damage!
Once the eagle got some much deserved rest it took off in spectacular fashion and left these fisherman with a story of a lifetime!
