Feb. 3 (UPI) — A British Columbia woman captured video of her family members rescuing a bald eagle they found in a wildlife trap while snowmobiling.
Tasha Hall said she was snowmobiling with family Jan. 27 in the hopes of finding some moose to photograph when the group spotted a bald eagle caught in a trap that appeared to have been intended for a larger animal, such as a wolf.
Two male family members worked to free the eagle while Hall filmed a video she posted to Facebook.
Hall took the eagle to BC Wildlife Park in Kamloops, where veterinarians determined it had avoided fractures from the trap, but they are keeping an eye on the bird to determine whether its soft tissue injuries were too severe for it to survive on its own.
