Good Samaritans rescue exhausted bald eagle from drowning and saved its life

After rescuing the iconic bird, a group of caring individuals was able to give it a second chance at life.

James and Angela Corbett, as well as James’ brother-in-law, Garnet, were picking clams off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, when they saw something peculiar in the water.

When the three approached the tired bird, they saw it “swimming” for its life.

The guys rescued the enormous bird and transported it on their boat without much thought.

They then attempted to dry the eagle’s feathers with their cloths.

Angela managed to photograph the dramatic incident on her iPhone as her husband and brother were rescuing the bird.

Once they had the eagle in their boat, the crew quickly contacted Canada’s Department of Natural Resources.

And the bird was handed to the Cobequid Wildlife Rehabilitation Center once they arrived at the island.

Following a thorough investigation, the team noticed that the bird’s right foot’s toes were gone, most likely as a result of a trap.

Despite this, the bird’s flight ability were unaffected, and after a night at the facility, the rescue eagle was released back into the wild.

The bald eagle population has plummeted in the last year.

Unfortunately, the species is on the verge of extinction as a result of highly harmful chemicals that are discharged into their habitats and poison them.

Wildlife specialists have often raised awareness about this issue, yet no one seemed to care about these gorgeous birds.
