April 27 (UPI) -- A Minnesota sheriff's deputy used welding gloves and a blanket to rescue of an injured eagle in a wetland area.
The Chisago County Sheriff's Office said Deputy Finnegan responded to a report of an inured eagle Saturday in North Branch.
The sheriff's office shared video of Finnegan using welding gloves and a blanket to capture the injured predator.
