Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

Ann, Michael, and Neil Fletcher were enjoying a cold afternoon in the woods of Sudbury, Canada, when they stumbled across something strange in one of their hunting traps: a bald eagle. Instead of letting the poor guy suffer in a trap intended for smaller game, the two brothers bravely decided to free him.

With the aid of their (non-helpful) dog, they were able to get the massive bird free.

Thankfully, they thought to stop and take the world's most epic selfie.

Seeing a bald eagle up close makes you realize why it's the national bird of the United States. Those creatures are intensely awesome.
