Photographer Rescues Bald Eagle From Trap

A wildlife photographer searching for moose came across a bald eagle struggling to survive in a hunter’s snare in British Columbia, Canada, last week. She believes the male bird had been stuck for at least two days in the trap, which was likely intended for a wolf. The photographer, Tasha Hall, caught the rescue on camera as her boyfriend, who’d been trained in freeing trapped animals, carefully helped the injured eagle out of the trap and wrapped him in Hall’s coat. She then drove three hours to get him to the B.C. Wildlife Park for help. Although his wing is “badly damaged,” the eagle has a good prognosis. “There is a good chance that he’ll have a full recovery and be released,” Hall said. — Read it at Canada’s Global News
