Are you an animal lover? Well, what you are about to see might make you react like the GIF below but, trust me, everything turned out a-okay!
On Thursday (Nov 10) two bald eagles were spotted fighting in the sky in Florida. During the altercation, one of them managed to get itself stuck in a storm drain.
Edward Bickerstaff told WFTV that he ” saw two eagles fighting in the sky and they just dropped right into the drain, so I immediately pulled over.”
The trapped eagle suffered a cracked beak among other injuries and it now being treated at an animal sanctuary. GOOD NEWS: In 4-6 weeks she will be well enough to return back to the wild.
Now the twist! A lot of people are wondering if this eagle-storm-drain-situation is something more than a freak accident…
Since this happened days after the U.S. election many are calling this a metaphor for the current state of America.
There are 2 bald eagles trapped in a Florida sewer drain. This is more allegory than I can handle right now. pic.twitter.com/5f6YPHv7rB— Justin Brannan (@JustinBrannan) November 10, 2016
I first thought why would an eagle swoop so low into the sewer drain but then I remember 2016 Election DID EXACTLY THAT— ☭ ☣ Not My President (@DaebakSoshi_LPL) November 11, 2016
