Sharp-Shooting Army Vet Hailed Hero For Saving Bald Eagle
Jason Glavin, a sharp-shooting Army veteran used a .22-caliber rifle to fire 150 shots at the rope and branches that a bald eagle had become entangled in. Glavin spotted the eagle dangling upside down near his family’s cabin in Minnesota.
After 90 minutes of shooting, he was able to clear the branches and sever the rope so that the Eagle could fall from the tree. The bird, which has been named Freedom, was taken to the University of Minnesota Raptor Center for treatment and is doing well.
