When Eagles Attack

When Eagles Attack - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

Beware of attacking eagles in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. As long as you dont wave your grub around, you probably wont get dive-bombed. But the eagles might join your football game...

In August 2001, locals and tourists in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire had a lot more to worry about than getting sunburns. A bald eagle was harassing people along the beach and even attacked a girl and two adults. Three year-old Kayla Finn was running down the beach, playing football when the eagle swooped down and clawed her back. With a wingspan of two meters, the bird couldn't be swatted like a fly. Her dad managed to brush it away and Kayla was fine.

It didn't help that people on the beach were feeding the eagle. The 14 month-old eagle figured out most people had food, so it's no wonder the bird took a closer look. When animal control officers tried to catch the animal, it dodged them every time.

Since the bird seemed to like footballs, officials tried to bait it into heading to the beach by tossing around a small green football. The eagle stayed on the sidelines because, as some people thought, the lure was too obvious. The bald eagle was eventually caught and sent to the Coastal Animal Clinic.

Have you ever been attacked by an animal?

1This one time I was walking down the street and a seagull attacked my head. It was really scary cuz I've got super big curly hair. I was really scared cuz I thought it was going to get tangled in my hair. And it was screeching and scratching at me. And everyone at a restaurant across the street was laughing at me. Oh yeah, I was limping too cuz I had blisters on my feet so I looked like a total gimp.

1Well, my friend was about to walk me home when this dog jumped out and attacked us. We saw on the news the night before to stand perfectly still. It took about thirty min. for that dog to finally back off. Ever since then I'm very frightened of dogs.
