A chilling video is circulating on the internet in which a bald eagle is caught in the claws of a large octopus. The footage is old and was captured in 2019 by a group of fishermen in Vancouver, Canada. It shows the eagle struggling to free itself from the octopus tentacles in a body of water. According to CNN, the fishermen were on their way home when they heard the eagle’s screams and saw it struggle with the squid. Since the clip was re-shared on Reddit, it has received more than 45,000 votes.
the guard said in a report that the octopus caught the bird of prey when it tried to attack it. The fishermen were initially afraid to intervene in the fight, but eventually decided to intervene and slowly “peel off the octopus”.
They pulled both animals to their boat with the help of a stick and released the bird from the squid’s tight grip. At the end of the video you can see the bald eagle sitting at the base of a tree as the octopus is pushed towards the base of the water body.
Bald eagles are protected species in the United States under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the Lacey Act.
Octopuses are fascinating creatures and always surprise people with their unique and extraordinary abilities. Not only do they help octopuses fight off predators, but also keep them safe in adverse situations.
Earlier this month, a viral video on social media showed an octopus’s incredible ability to change color depending on its environment.
The 23-second video showed the cephalopod moving across the seafloor, changing the color of its skin depending on nearby fauna.
