Eagle Feeding

Copyright Barbara Samuelson 1997

This piece of salmon was the back and tail discarded by a commercial fisherman in Sitka, Alaska. Eagles will fight over salmon dragged out of the water. They will wait till the salmon has spawned, and is either dead or near dead. At one time, the government put a bounty out on the eagles because it was thought that they were taking the salmon before they had spawned; $5 per eagle. Over 350,000 were killed before the bounty was removed.
