It sounds crazy, but that is exactly what happened to a man driving in Florida. A bald eagle flew too close to the road, shooting out in front of a moving vehicle and becoming lodged inside! It was a miracle, but the bird was still alive. The driver immediately called for help and was shocked the the bird could have survived the impact after getting stuck.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office and Clay Fire Rescue personnel responded quickly, prying the eagle from inside of the car and tried their best to keep the bird from getting injured further. They worked together, searching for the best way to help the bird out of the tight situation, a large cage on standby for if and when they freed the eagle.
Once the eagle was freed, he was sent to B.E.A.K.S. Wildlife Sanctuary to recover and regain strength before being released back into the wild. Hopefully, this poor bird will have learned a valuable lesson about staying away from cars!
People praised the quick actions of the rescue personnel and are thanking BEAKS for their continued care for the distressed eagle. What would you have done if this had happened to you?!
