A bald eagle was rescued from an electrical tower in New Jersey after being stuck in a wing for five hours.

A rescue team spent hours helping a bald eagle that got stuck on a power tower by itself.

Police in Monmouth County, New Jersey were notified by local bird watcher Blake Bohnick that a large bird appeared to be stuck on a communications tower.

Monmouth County Police contacted Radio Communications Supervisor Jonathan Gregory and the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) for further assistance.

The two were able to coordinate climbers from New Jersey Task Force 1, Monmouth County OEM (Office of Emergency Management) and Oceanport OEM to rescue the bird from the tower.

That’s according to the sheriff’s office, which shared news of the bird’s rescue on its Facebook page. (See the video at the top of this article.)
