Brothers Michael and Neil Fletcher saved a bald eagle from a trap, then took an epic selfie.

It was an average day for Michael and Neil, two brothers hunting near Windy Lake in Canada on Tuesday, according to the SudburyStar.

They went into a bush and stumbled upon a beautiful bald eagle, caught in a trap.

The bald eagle had one of its talons caught in a claw trap which is usually used by fur harvesters. The brothers jumped into action and freed the bird from the trap. They then called the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.

How they freed the large eagle was by placing a hoodie over the birds head while they pressed on the release of the trap. They tried to calm the bird, and while unwrapping it from the hoodie, they got an epic selfie with the eagle.

The bird was extremely co-operative and didn't fuss at all. There was no injury to the bald eagle. Watch the entire rescue in the amazing video below.
