LOCAL Police in Los Gallardos have saved the live of an eagle.
The three officers went to help the bird on Monday after a local resident reported the bird of prey appeared to be drowning in a pool.
With the careful maneuvering of some sticks, the trio managed to get the stricken bird out the water alive, immediately informing Junta de Andalucia Environment officers about the situation and so they could take care of the creature.
Los Gallardos council posted a special thanks to the officers “for the great work you do in our municipality.”
The rescued bird is a Bonelli’s eagle, which is a protected species.
