Canadian brothers' eagle selfie is the new selfie benchmark
What did you do this week? Michael and Neil Fletcher freed an eagle from a trap and were rewarded with one of the best selfies of 2015.
The brothers, from Chelmsford, Ontario, were grouse shooting on Tuesday when they came across an eagle stuck in a trap, they told local paper, the Sudbury Star.
The pair posted a series of videos on Facebook of their attempt to free the bird, which had its talon caught. After a number of tries and an overeager labrador that tried to help, they succeed in putting a hoodie over the eagle to calm it down so they could release the trap.
Eye-to-eye with the majestic creature, Michael couldn't help but be impressed. "I was surprised by the size, and that it's such a beautiful bird," he told the outlet. "When you see the eyes up close, they're really amazing."
