While paddling down the iconic Danube River, what this Hungarian couple didn’t expect to find were two rare white-tailed eagles, stuck together and at risk of drowning.
Eagles were probably buckled this way after the fight. Klaudia Kis and Richard Varga knew they had to act.
They helped the couple humanely, using a rope, before continuing their journey from the Black Sea near Romania to the Black Forest of Germany.
Their trip upriver will take them three months in total.
According to the BBC, that is also how long they met before embarking on their journey. Danube upstream eco-awareness project.
