Bald Eagle Drops Deer Onto Power Lines, Knocking Out Electricity


A deer fawn dropped by a bald eagle onto a high-voltage power line knocked out electricity to residents in western Montana, according to an official of Northwest Energy. "It´s a first-time thing," she said.

The fawn, which was probably just days old, was discovered in the power lines by a homeowner who had also noticed a bald eagle nearby. Bald eagles´ wingspans reach to nearly eight feet and they can weigh up to 14 pounds.

Northwestern said that the dropped eagle food caused a power outage of about a half hour to about 30 homes.

Are fucking amazing birds.

They have nearly no sense of fear or remorse. They´ll approach almost any creature they´ve never encountered before out of curiosity, study it for a bit to see if they can kill and potentially consume it.

No wonder it´s the USA´s national animal eh

"For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him."

  Shortly thereafter...  
It is almost certain that Ben, being a jolly chap, with a wink and nudge said to the fellow next to him. "Though this does make him a prime candidate for a position as a politician..."

Another way of looking at the Eagle is it is a good representation of this country. Because when push comes to shove it will come down to the survival of the fittest. The Eagle does whatever it takes to make sure its species survives.
Not to mention the bird is intelligent, it is experimenting with the cooking of its food.
