See Brothers Rescue Bald Eagle, Take Epic Selfie

The selfie has gone viral.

"It needed help so we just jumped in," Michael Fletcher, 29, told ABC News, saying he had never seen a bald eagle so close before. "It was crazy."

The two men, both from nearby Chelmsford, Ontario, decided to help the eagle, using a stick to open the trap and set the bird free. The brothers, one of whom works as a technician and the other as a hoisting engineer, took two videos of their rescue mission.

"I figured no one would believe us," Fletcher said on why they decided to record the ordeal.
