True Story!

I'd heard a rumor of this happening in Alaska, but thought it was an urban legend...

Just yesterday, a friend was hanging out at a beach near Port Townsend with her Yorkie when a bald eagle swooped down, grabbed the dog and tried to fly off! Fortunately, Peanut, who is barely a year old, was wearing a leash. Once the eagle realized Peanut was tethered, it dropped her and flew off. She's going to be okay after spending the night at the vet, but she has a punctured lung and is afraid to go outside. I don't blame her!

Poor Peanut!! So sad!

Lucky for me, I think an eagle would have a pretty tough time carrying Olivia off :)
