Eagle snatches Lake Padden fisherman's catch right off his line

A Ferndale fisherman had a close encounter with a bald eagle a few weeks ago.

Bruce Huntley was fishing on Lake Padden near Bellingham with buddy Rick Warren when the eagle swooped down and snatched the fish on his line just 10 feet in front of his boat.

Huntley told the Bellingham Herald that the bird "scared the holy bejesus" out of him.

Warren had his camera with him and got a couple great shots of the eagle. He told the Herald that getting the shots was a lot better than catching a fish.

Sadly, that's very similar to the thought process of our president right now.. Let somebody else do the hard work, and then take it from them.

I hope his drag wasnt set too tight, that eagle would proabably pull him across the lake in that little boat.

I was up near Atlanta, MI on Fletchers Pond and saw a bald eagle drop out of the sky and snatch a fish out of the water. Prolly about 50 Yards from us. Pretty damn cool! Not as cool as off the line but still sweet!

My niece had a similar experience with a Red Tail Hawk, except it was her Pomeranian on a 30 foot cable. Hawk picked him up started to fly away and the cable jerked him out of its talons. After 28 stitches the poor dog would not go out of the house for 3 months.

There was an article about this picture, this picture was actually something they were intentionally trying to do. The eagle did it the day before i believe it was so they went back hoping to recreate it and get a picture of it.

A trained eagle, that's pretty impressive.
