Jason Galvin and his neighbors recently noticed a helpless eagle hanging from a huge tree. He was stuck at a height of 70 feet above the ground. Initially, they thought that the bird was dead, but when they reached for a pair of binoculars, they saw that the animal was still moving.
They called the police and fire department, but no one wanted to help them. Instead of leaving the bird to die, Jason’s wife begged her husband to take his shotgun and shoot through the rope that was holding the bird up in the air. She knew it was a good idea, because her husband was very skilled with firearms, being that he served twice in Afghanistan.
The veteran agreed, and a moment later, began the quite unusual rescue. He had to be very careful as not to kill the animal or damage his limbs, which were quite tangled up in the rope.
Two hours and 150 shots later, Jason got the eagle safely to the ground. He certainly never thought that his army experience would prove useful to him in everyday life.
