A sea eagle was left high and dry when it became tangled on an overhead power line, sparking a four hour rescue operation.
The red-backed bird became entangled on the cable because of a fishing hook and nylon line embedded in its talon.
After freeing the creature, rescuers said such scenarios are all too familiar in Australia's Gold Coast in Queensland, because of the careless disposal of such fishing equipment.
