Trio rescues young eagle from clutches of icy river

Interesting Alaska Story:

First, I am also  a Director on the American Bald Eagle Foundation in Haines, Alaska.   As many of you know, just before our local Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival, Nov. 19-20,  I spent the previous week in Haines, Alaska at our Chilkat-Haines Bald Eagle Festival.  

Several of  you also attended that wonderful Alaska event.  Our member, Ed Kingshott/edkeagle   was also there and he forwarded the following article.

Three rescuers used a rope harness, a couple two-by-fours, and a pair of Pampered Chef scissors to free a juvenile eagle frozen in the Chilkat River near 21 Mile Haines Highway on Nov. 17.

California wildlife photographer Mark Lissick spotted the bird – literally spread-eagle on the ice and not moving – while returning from a photo outing. He said he’d seen several eagles that day with ice on their wing and tail feathers.
