Off The Record
Fisherman Feeds Large Flock Of Bald Eagles, He Pans To The Left And Can’t Believe His Eyes
When the camera turns to the left, everyone was speechless that this moment was caught on camera.
Wild animals can sometimes be terrifying. Not many people can get close to bears, lions, tigers, but a man named Jessie Peck got close to one of the most incredible birds on the planet, and people have the right be jealous of him!
Living in some parts of Alaska it’s not hard to see a bald eagle in person. The population of these birds of pray is over 600 in Unalaska, of around 5,000 inhabitants. The magnificent birds are drawn there by the carrion and the waterfowl.
Bald eagles can be very dangerous, especially if they feel their little ones are threatened by humans.
“We have these signs that we put up every year to remind people that there are nesting eagles in the area,” Deputy Police Chief Jennifer Shockley told Alaska Republic. “They will do whatever it takes to protect their young, and that typically includes launching themselves at people and using their talons to lacerate their heads.”
But it looks like it didn’t concern Jessie much. In a video posted on YouTube he is spotted feeding bald eagles, and it has over 9.3M views! The crowd is cheering as the eagles land on the boat, one by one.
Many people who saw the video are stunned by the large flock.
“This is wonderful! How fortunate Alaskans are to have so many of these glorious raptors!” one person wrote.
“That would be such a majestic experiences. Hundreds of natures most beautiful creatures just coming to chill with you on your boat…so cool,” another added.
Bob Wilson, a commercial fisherman told Men’s Journal: “Do I think they’re pests? Oh, absolutely. But they’re cool pests, so that’s OK. They make a mess of my boat, which is kind of the bad part, but they are our national bird and we love them anyway.”
I wish I was there to see this magnificent sight in person, but luckily we have the YouTube video below to see the awesome spectacle.
