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?
They’ll soon be hunting them from helicopters, and it’ll be well documented by Faux News’ expert Alaska commentator.
Maybe the Discovery Channel can do a reality show – “Eagle Hunters” – hosted by you-know-who.
Surely nothing can happen, the national bird has a higher level of protection than canada geese.
Are we now going to see an Alaskan initiative in congress to follow Benjamin Franklin’s idea of a national bird?
I suppose someone should make some sort of snide golf-related joke …
