Bald Eagle Eats House Cat on Sidewalk

Do not, do NOT, fuck with a Bald Eagle.

Merica.

According to PilotOnline, a black cat apparently crossed the wrong path Tuesday afternoon – and ended up as lunch for a bald eagle.

Dozens of people crowded around as the eagle ate the cat on the sidewalk (in Norfolk, VA). Traffic stopped in front of Advance Auto Parts at 26th Street and Monticello Avenue as drivers took a closer look, said store manager Bobby Rafalski.

He’d only ever seen anything remotely like that at a zoo, “not an eagle just randomly in the middle of the city.”

The eagle was more than two feet long from head to tail and stood around a foot and a half tall, he said. People were eager to get photos, but they weren’t getting too close.

“It’s intimidating. It’s an eagle. It has razor-sharp claws and a razor-sharp beak.”

Nature is one scary MFer.
