Lifelong fisherman Randy Sadler happened upon a bald eagle in despair. It was in the middle of a large body of water, flapping aimlessly. It was lost offshore in the Pacific Northwest.
With his customized, kite-shaped fishing lure, Sadler and his unidentified cameraman buddy caught the helpless beast: “At least dry its wings, it’s soaked, it can’t do anything.”
And so Sadler proceeded to towel down the bald eagle and spoon-feed it. After a proper nursing, the eagle flew back into the wilderness.
