While on a run to pick up some minnows, Army-vet Jason Galvin noticed a bald eagle dangling 70 feet above his head from a tree branch. While most of the locals in the Minnesota town assumed the bird was dead, Galvin took out his binoculars and saw it was still breathing and its leg was caught on some rope tied to the branch. After calling the fire department, police, and and the DNR, no one was able to help.
With the bird’s life hanging in peril, and no authorities able to help, Jackie asked her husband, a former sharpshooter who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan, to shoot the rope. After getting approval from the DNR, Gavin grabbed his .22 long rifle and got down to business.
