    Michael and Neil Fletcher, of Sudbury, Ontario, took a selfie with a bald eagle they rescued from a hunting trap in Canada.

    Two Canadian brothers who rescued a bald eagle from a trap took the rare chance to snap a selfie with the stately creature before setting it free.

    Michael Fletcher, 29, said he was hunting with his brother, Neil, near Ontario's Windy Lake on Tuesday, when they stumbled upon the majestic bird caught in a hunting trap.

    They knew they had to do something, but freeing the animal was no easy task. "When we got close to the bird, it tried to fly away. So I took my hoodie off and put it around its head, it calmed it right down," Fletcher told NBC News on Saturday.
