(KOVR/Meredith) -- A bald eagle rescue on Easter Sunday in California was caught on camera. 

Rescuers told KOVR it's very rare to capture a live bald eagle. 

"It's fighting for its life. It has no idea that we are trying to capture it to save it," said Susan Manning, one of the rescuers. 

Manning said the bird was covered in puncture wounds.
