He untangled himself & let his friends know he was okay & asking direction\/help & all the while talking so the bird knew it wasn't in immediate danger. Notice how he tried to calm the bird & to stroke it. If he had of tried to move first to untangle the bird he could have tripped with all that cabling etc & fallen on the bird in such steep terrain & then the bird would have been panicking. If you were up thousands of feet in the air & dropped out of the sky in such inhospitable terrain you would be spitting chips to. No wonder he wanted clean under wear. haha. I think he handled the whole thing very professionally.","can_remove":false,"created_time":"2012-12-07T23:31:40+0000","like_count":1,"user_likes":false},{"id":"10150440087941474_24913061","from":{"id":"100000237369798","name":"Gary Ferguson"},"message":"ive seen it before and I still think the guy did all the right things, and helped the little eagle free it self.","can_remove":false,"created_time":"2012-06-07T10:47:58+0000","like_count":1,"user_likes":false},{"id":"10150440087941474_21023749","from":{"id":"100000524801011","name":"Rileen Cornelius"},"message":"Everyone will view this differently I would imagine..While I do not speak this person's language and don't know exactly what he was saying, It appeared to me that he was in some shock after his ordeal but kept his head while he accessed the situation. He needed to get things untangled AND himself first.... then he gently and calmly began to untangle the Eagle. The Eagle remained still most of the time while being released from the webbing intertwinded on the wings. For me, I don't know how anyone could have remained so calm through this terrible ordeal.
