Over a dozen bald eagles made the mistake of landing a slurry of mud and were trapped. Big Eagle to the rescue!
U.S. Park Police came to the rescue in their helicopter, the Eagle. Hovering inches above the mud, they began pulling trapped eagles to freedom.
The bald eagles were loaded on board the helicopter to a waiting crew.
Park Police moved from bird to bird in the Eagle until all the bald eagles were on board.
Wet, cold, and frightened, the birds are brought to a recovery center. They are free thanks to U. S. Park Police and a really big Eagle.
