Thread subject: Fish/car accident
Name Date Message
Kathi 06/15/07 09:03 am a couple of years ago i laughed to see the news [for a change..] apparently, an eagle had snared himself a fish and was flying it home, but he lost his grip-only to drop a HUGE muskie fish on the HOOD OF A CAR which caused the driver to hit the ditch-no one was hurt, but it was the first 'fish/car' accident in recorded history in our locale.. felt sorry for the drivers BUT it HAD to be hard to explain that they hit the ditch because of a FISH.. wonders never cease.. [glad about THAT!]
Melanie 06/15/07 11:33 am That's as good as the one several months back about the Bald Eagle in Juneau, Alaska who took out the whole town's electricity. The eagle who found a deer head in the town landfill. It proved a little too heavy, the eagle couldn't get enough lift and crashed into transmission lines. When repair crews arrived, they found the eagle carcass with the deer head nearby.
Marie 06/15/07 11:44 am Yes we had a similar situation witha young eagle that took out a whole shopping centers power last year. It fried itself unfortunately, when it too hit power lines.
It isn't easy to be a big bird.
