What started out to be a hunting trip for two Canadian brothers ended up becoming a wildlife rescue mission.

The results were captured on camera, and the epic selfie is quickly going viral.

Neil and Michael Fletcher discovered the trapped bird while hunting. The brothers carefully approached the bird and one of the brothers removed his jacket to cover the bird to keep it from moving. The pair worked cautiously to free the bird from the trap, as their curious dog was sniffing around the snowy area.

Finally, the brothers succeeded in removing the bird from the trap and before setting it free, they decided to take a selfie. Michael Fletcher told BuzzFeed that people are calling it the “selfie of the year.”
