Eagle Grabs More Food Than It Can Fly With

A Fawn dangles from a power line in Montana

Missoula, Montana
June 17, 2011

A bald eagle natched a deer fawn from the ground and flew off towards its lair for a leisurely meal. Realizing it had stolen more food than it could fly with, the eagle dropped the small deer on a power line, barbecuing the fawn and causing a brief power outage in the area.

There was no indication whether the eagle had returned later for a fully cooked meal.
