Brothers Rescue Eagle, Take Selfie

Our next story will also leave you with a smile. It’s about two brothers who recently saved a trapped bald eagle in Ontario, Canada...and at the same time, took this memorable selfie.

Michael and Neil Fletcher found the eagle while driving through the woods caught in a metal hunting trap. They stopped to help, and were able to pry open the trap just enough to free the eagle's talon.

This being 2015, the pair naturally took a selfie with the grateful bird. They also caught a video of the newly-freed eagle flying off into the Canadian wilderness.
