40 Bald Eagles Descend on a Pickup While Its Owner Is Shopping

the daily dish More on PawNation: Awesome, Birds, Eagles, The Dish, Weird
An Alaskan shopper returned to his pick-up to find a heavy dose of patriotism. According KUCB, a flock of roughly 40 eagles descended on a truck parked at a Safeway.

The birds took an interest in the vehicle due to the contents in the back. The pickup was packed with garbage bags of old fish that the car owner was planning to dispose of, but the eagles did the job before the owner had a chance.



The surprising appearance of the animals prompted several calls to the police. Officials arrived on the scene to help clear away the birds so people in neighboring cars near the pickup could get into their vehicles safely.

Police tried using car alarms and sirens to no avail. Eventually several officers approached the eagles and were able to disperse them from the area. None of the animals or humans involved in the incident were harmed. The pickup's owner was not cited and was able to get his unwanted fish taken care of as well.

Just an old Navajo hunting in Alaska and using fish to capture eagles for their feathers. I wish they would change their head dress to coyote pelts and use the neighbors cats for bait.

Those were just Alaskan canaries. What's the big fuss?

The truth is that eagles are beautiful creatures but in Alaska they are the buzzards feeding off of decay and death much more than their own kills.

In Alaska they're still beautiful creatures. It's the human filth they're helping clean up.

While eagles are beautiful creatures, the truth is that in Alaska they are the buzzards of the area. They feed on waste and death much more than they can kill on their own.

What an honor! To be swooped by an eagle is tremendous honor, think what honor having a pickupload of them bestows!

It wasn't the fish they were after. They were working their way down to picking apart that Jap pickup.
