A Bald Eagle crashed into an Alaska Airlines jet as it roared down the runway in Sitka, Alaska, at 140 mph on Sunday, nearly causing a disaster and forcing the plane to stay on the ground. Then, amazingly, the plane sent to replace the damaged plane ALSO HIT AN EAGLE! We know how New York City reacted to Canada Geese colliding with a plane so one must wonder if Bald Eagles are going to face a cull? Or are they safe because they don’t poop on lawns?
