As thousands and thousands of demonstrators take to the streets in various cities of the United States to protest the election of Donald Trump, one cannot deny the fact that America is literally stuck in the situation for the next four years.
But country is not the only one that is in trouble. Two bald eagles seen trapped in a storm drain in Florida are being compared to the current post-election situation.
Many people are even saying that they too are protesting against Trump’s election to the White House.
There are bald eagles trapped in a sewer drain here in Orlando. If that's not a metaphor for America right now I don't know what is.— Adam Soucie (@AdamSoucie) November 10, 2016
There are 2 bald eagles trapped in a Florida sewer drain. This is more allegory than I can handle right now. pic.twitter.com/5f6YPHv7rB— Justin Brannan (@JustinBrannan) November 10, 2016
Two bald eagles injured in Orlando. How coincidental that a symbol of this nation is stuck in a drain. 🤔🤔— .Glenda. (@imagine_dream_9) November 10, 2016
I just passed 2 bald eagles stuck in a streetside drain on Goldenrod with emergency crews trying to get them out. Enough is ENOUGH, Trump— Andrew Bozymowski (@boz_is_boz) November 10, 2016
So two bald eagles were trapped in a sewer drain in Florida. Probably Cuz Florida let freedom go down the drain after voting for Trump.— alex ayala (@Lexdothis67) November 11, 2016
2 bald Eagles in a drain?? America is definitely going downhill x2— ari (@lightsonjh) November 11, 2016
The eagles remained stuck in the drain for quite a few hours. While one flew out on its own accord, the other was trapped until help from Audubon Center for Birds of Prey arrived.
Initially, the crowd watching the two struggling birds thought the one on top was protecting its mate, but Dianna Flynt from the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey said that wasn’t true.
Unfortunately, even though the eagle was rescued after only a few hours of ordeal and the other one flew away, it seems like the United States will remain in the same position for at least the next four years. Who its savior will be remains unknown.
