    Army Veteran Rescues Eagle Stuck In Tree
    July 1, 2016 10:40 PM


    RUSH CITY, Minn. (WCCO) — It’s the Fourth of July weekend, so it’s fitting to hear a story about an eagle rescued by a veteran.

    Earlier this week, Jason Galvin and his neighbors noticed an eagle dangling from a tree near Rush City. Its leg was caught in a piece of rope that was wrapped around a branch, about 70 feet off the ground.

    “I thought it was dead at the time,” Jason said. “I took a closer look with binoculars and saw that the head was moving, and I knew it was very much alive.”

    Nice story.
    The government fails again but allows a citizen to fix things.
    I guess it was smart of him to ask permission and actually nice ( yet surprising) that he got it.
    I'd rather ask for forgiveness.

        If you shoot a .22 rifle in the air like that, it will travel for miles. Not sure I would have done that.

          150 .22 shots or 1 S&W 500. Great story!

            Yup. 150 shots. They gotta come down somewhere.
            Give a man fire, and he stays warm for one night. Set a man on fire, and he stays warm for the rest of his life.

                  The more I think about it, it's pretty stupid. I never shoot uphill while hunting. I know my surroundings pretty well. Where the roads are, where the residential areas are, etc, etc. And I usually hunt down hill, or a flat area. Shooting upwards is just ..... not the wisest thing you can do. And I remember as a boy scout, I learned a .22 bullet can travel 2 miles. So you better know where it's going. This was done by an Army vet. Hopefully he knew his surroundings.

                      wow, that is a lot of shots. Lucky for the Eagle I wasn't the one doing the shooting.
                      Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
