Pass Lake eagle makes the news...

The video definitely looks like he was purposely not tryin to actually land the fish but rather just hold it there until the eagle went after it. I don't think he was trying to catch an eagle but rather have a cool video of an eagle stealing his fish. Def guilty of stupidity on this one, but I can't imagine why he would try and catch an eagle that thing would tear him apart if he landed it.

" Yur Honir, I object! My client was certainly NOT fuckin' that eagle!"

"Objection overruled. No one has ever suggested that he was fuckin' that eagle. That would imply intimate physical contact and the video shows that clearly there was none. Instead the charges are "fuckin' with the eagle" which would fall in the category of an idiomatic expression with a colloquial bent-an expression born of gutter slang and in this case used to suggest that the eagle was being harassed, pestered, intimidated or compromised in some way."

"Perhaps you have confused the proceedings of this court with Bestiality Court which is in Chamber 3A across the hall."

These types of encounter are very common on our lakes down here, whether it's the Eagle at Merrill or ospreys on every lake in existence. Eventually, a not-so-rare-anymore bird's going to get a hook in it and the entire world will freak the fuck out. Personally, when the eagle at Merrill buzzes me outta nowhere from a few feet away, it scares the living shit out of me. I'm not about to try and get a fish to hand while it's trying to steal the fish.

You must be referencing ferry county.

i'll tell you guys something, Tony does not hear or have anything to do with his girlfriend narrating "her" video. The only reason she says anything about where is the eagle or there he is, was because she got the crap scared out of her by an eagle taking her fish just an hour or so before.... They are spinning this crap out of control.
I beleive the real story should be about the severity of the eagle problems and how there are so many of them they are a friggin nuisance.. should be taken off the protected list. We should all be sticking up for him. He is an ethical and fair chase hunter and fisherman. I've seen it for myself..
About him holding on to the fish for so long, he does it everywhere he fishes. He loves playing it to the end. infact if you look at the video you will see the fish still has plenty of spunk just before the eagle assults him and you will also notice that he reaches behind himself and grabs his net and has it in hand as tho he wishes to land the fish.

I think the important lesson to take from this is how serious some people take the issue. Don't let yourself get into a bad/questionable situation if you can in any way avoid it. I can't speak to the intent of the guy. I can draw some conclusions from the video, but they are probably skewed.

This is one for the system to figure out.

I left my cat out in the yard an eagle flew down and caught it.
I have it on video, only thing it did not fly very far cause the cat was heavy. So then I shoot the eagle to save my cat. Was I baiting, was it illegal to protect my property, this is hypothetical?
