Eagles are majestic, terrifying creatures. If you’ve ever seen one up close, they are really quite a sight to behold. I saw a bald eagle up close at the Santa Ana zoo once, and I can tell you, you would not want to mess with one of those. Birds have smaller brains than mammals, so they act on instinct more. Sure they can be trained and domesticated to some extent, but you can only accomplish so much when working with an animal with such a small cranium.
It’s really quite sad that a lot of eagles are endangered now. Stop polluting lakes, people. It makes eagle eggs all mushy and their babies are born deformed.
