"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.
