SUDBURY, Ontario — Two Canadian men freed a bald eagle that was stuck in a trap, but not before taking an epic selfie with it.
Michael Fletcher of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada told Buzzfeed Canada that he and his brother, Neil, were hunting grouse when they spotted what looked like an eagle in the woods. As they walked closer, they noticed that the bald eagle had one of its talons caught in a trap.
Noticing that the bird was calm, presumably tired from fighting to break free, the brothers said they walked up to release it. But not before setting up their phone to capture a video of the rescue.
According to Buzzfeed, once they freed the bird, Michael said his brother had the idea to take a selfie. The result was nothing short of amazing.
“Everybody thinks it’s like the selfie of the year,” Fletcher told Buzzfeed.
After taking the selfie, the two proceeded to free the bird… On camera, of course.
