A team of salmon farmers saved a bald eagle from the death grip of a giant octopus off the northwest tip of Canada's Vancouver Island, CNN reported.

According to CNN, the group was returning to their float house last week when they heard shrieking and splashing sounds.

The team then found a "full-sized eagle submerged in the water with a big giant octopus in the water trying to drag it down," CNN reported. The team initially wasn't sure about intervening, but they decide to rescue the eagle.

CNN reports they reached out with a pole with a small hook attached and gave the octopus a "tug." The octopus then released its grip, giving the eagle just enough time to get to shore.
