Man Saves Bald Eagle From Drowning In The River

You never quite know what you will see when you are spending a day out in nature.

Nobody knows this better than Emmett Blous, who was out with friends river rafting on the Shubenacadie River in Nova Scotia.

The day was going well but Emmett looked over and saw a group of bald eagles, and one was struggling.

A tidal bore caused the bald eagles to take flight but one eagle got hit by a wave and was unable to make it to safety. She was really struggling, but fortunately, Emmett and his crew were there to save the day.

I’m sure it was quite a sight to look over and see a bald eagle struggling and flapping in the water. After they pulled up alongside her and took her into a boat, they noticed that she had an injured leg.

They didn’t want to let the bird go injured, so they took her to Hope for Wildlife Rescue.

As Emmett held on to her in the boat, he could feel her heart pounding but she started to settle down after she realized he wasn’t going to injure her.

It took an hour for them to get the boat back to the dock again. They then took her to Hope for Wildlife Rescue and found out that she was suffering from ligament damage in one of her legs.

The rescue kept the bird as she healed but when she was feeling up to it, they were able to release her. They even invited Emmett to come to watch it all happen.
