Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Feeding the Eagles

January of this year, 2010, the weather stayed so cold in St. Louis, Missouri and  Alton, Illinois that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a quick meal.

They could not access fish that were at the bottom of the river and had gathered together. 

Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell.

They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.

The photos below show what happened. A former teaching colleague took these photos in front of his home.

Incredible!

Feeding the Eagles!

Once the fish were thrown, the eagles did not seem to fear the good Samaritans and
word spread fast!

Here are the men who were feeding them. So close!!

As you know, it was not too long ago that the American Bald Eagle, our nation’s mascot, was an endangered species.
