In Canada, fisherman for Mahatta West Farm rescued a bald eagle trapped in the tentacles of a huge red octopus.  What could have ended up in a deadly match between the two, because of human intervention, both wild animals survived.

According to Mowi Canada West,  the video recorded by the men of the situation showed the bird with its wings extended caught in the tentacles of the octopus. The fishermen used a pole to lift the octopus off of the eagle.

“That was amazing! We saved the eagle,” one of the fishermen yelled.

The octopus then swam away and the eagle retreated to a tree branch and rested for ten minutes before flying away.

“Our staff at our Mahatta West farm in Quatsino rescued an eagle that had bitten off more than it could chew when it tried to catch an octopus. They are used to seeing the wonders of nature around them on a regular basis, but they knew that this was a once in a lifetime experience…”
