The animals are always the first to know.

In what some are considering a bit of symbolism for our country going down the drain, two bald eagles in — you guessed it — Florida decided to hammer home that metaphor by getting stuck in a drain. With their talons feet from being washed away by the waste water below, the two eagles cried out for a help as a nation looks on in horror, powerless to do anything.

Many are probably wondering, how did those eagles get in that storm drain? What were they doing so close to that storm drain? Don’t they know that storm drains are dangerous? Don’t they know that just because a storm drain hosted a reality TV show that doesn’t make it a qualified world leader? Questions that, you know, could only be applied to a situation in which two bald eagles get stuck in a storm drain.

Luckily, authorities from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission intervened and rescued the trapped metaphor. One of the eagles was taken to Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland to treat its injuries. The other was released, presumably to search out more storm drains because no matter how perfect this metaphor is, it’s worth repeating over and over.

Michael and Neil Fletcher were hunting in Ontario's Windy Lake when they spotted a bald eagle caught in a claw trap. However, freeing the bird was no easy task. When they got close, the eagle tried to fly away. They eventually were able to calm the majestic bird by throwing a hoodie over its eyes. All the while, their golden retriever sat extremely curious.

The brothers eventually set the bald eagle free, but not before capturing this unforgettable selfie.
