A bald eagle dubbed Nanoose, which was rescued by a Vancouver Island fisherman, who found the exhausted bird floundering in the ocean near Nanoose Bay, recently died.

The eagle's rescue was caught on video back in September, and shows the tired, juvenile bird appearing to swim toward the sport fishing boat before being helped aboard by fisherman Don Dunbar.
