A dramatic rescue unfolded on social media Thursday after twotwo bald eagles got stuck in an Orlando, Floridadrainage ditch.
It was first thought that one eagle was protecting the other, but one was really stuck on top of the other, likely because they were fighting, an animal expert told ClickOrlando.com. When one eagle managed to fly away, the bird on the bottom fell in the drain. Rescuers could be seen on more than one Facebook live post trying to figure out how to remove the hurt animal.
