In Juneau, Alaska, an ambitious bald eagle had apparently found a deer head in the local dump and was carrying it away when the bird crashed into nearby power lines, causing a power outage for approximately 10,000 people.

Unfortunately, the eagle did not survive.

    Hmm, I wonder how roast eagle tastes. A lot like chicken I’d bet.
