A bald eagle was rescued from the Atlantic Ocean last week by a couple of lobstermen. John Chipman Jr. and Kevin Meaney were aboard the fishing vessel the “Theresa Anne” when they spotted the eagle struggling in the water. The eagle was attempting to swim and at one point decided to swim toward their boat and tried to climb up. Meaney tossed a life ring into the water to see if the waterlogged eagle would perch on it. The eagle was interested, but the instability of the ring made the bird topple off. Then then men tied the cover of a bait tank to the life ring to create a makeshift raft. The eagle got right on. The entire makeshift life raft was then picked up and put on the boat. After a short rest on the boat the eagle flew off.
