Quick thinking staff at salmon farmers’ site in Quatsino, Canada, saved bird of prey from a watery grave in “a once in a lifetime experience”
Mowi Canada West posted extraordinary footage when they spotted a bald eagle was being attacked by an octopus earlier this week.
“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,” Mowi wrote
“The octopus swam away unharmed and the eagle recovered on a branch for around 10 minutes before it flew away,” it added.
