Man spots 2 eagles in lake with talons ‘hooked’ together—watch closely as the pair’s untangled

A man discovers two eagles drowning in a lake, and how decisively he acts to rescue them is captured in this clip.

Dan Cole found these two birds of prey in trouble after they had somehow fallen into muddy water, with their talons locked together and feathers waterlogged.

The thoughtful man instantly reached for a tree branch and placed it between their claws, while hooking them and pulling them up in an astonishing display of strength. Then he proceeded to unlock their talons manually.

Once freed, one of the eagles flew away, while the other stayed around with its head bowed—it seemed as if the mighty bird was showing gratitude towards the rescuer!
