Canadian Brothers Rescue Eagle Caught In Trap, Take Epic Selfie With It

This might just be the best selfie of the year. Brothers Michael and Neil Fletcher from Chelmsford, Ontario, were out shooting grouse when they stumbled upon an eagle that had its talon caught in a trap, according to local paper the Sudbury Star. After several attempts to free it, they finally calmed the bird by putting a hoodie over it before releasing the trap.
