Eagle Named Uncle Sam Attacked Donald Trump (RAW VIDEO)
9 December 2015
During Time‘s Person of the Year search, the magazine invited Donald Trump for a shoot with a patriotic theme. Trump’s co-star, Uncle Sam the [bald] eagle, did not approve of the experience. Now, bald eagles can be gentle creatures, which is what the internet recently observed when two Canadian brothers rescued one (and brought the universal selfie to its ultimate crescendo). Uncle Sam wasn’t feeling gentle during this shoot, though. At one point, Sam swooped at Trump’s head, and Time saw fit to release this gif as proof.
As far as I know, this bald eagle is neither Mexican nor Muslim. Maybe it knew about Republican presidential candidate Trump and his family‘s views on the environment and animals. See Trump Defends His Sons’ Sick Hobby Of Killing Innocent Animals.
In 2011, Donald Trump‘s sons Eric and Donald Jr. went to Africa to kill wild animals. Their tour company, Hunting Legends, posted images of the pair smiling with their trophies: a leopard, bull, waterbuck, crocodile and even one holding a sawed off elephant‘s tail next to the animal’s body: here.

From daily The Independent in Britain:
The siblings were hunting for grouse when they came across the bird caught in a claw trap
29 November 2015
A pair of Canadian brothers took a ‘selfie’ with a bald eagle after rescuing the bird from a trap.
Michael told local newspaper The Sudbury Star they were driving through an open area when Neil thought he saw an eagle. After exploring the area on foot, they saw movement and walked toward it, where they found the huge bird on the ground.
The eagle had one of its talons stuck in a claw trap, a type of trap used by fur harvesters.
Michael said: “It was attached to a stake and the eagle was trying to fly up, but it only had a foot of slack in the chain.”
He explained how the huge bird calmed down when they covered its head with a hoodie and held on to it while working on the trap’s release mechanism.
“It calmed right down,” he said. “It didn’t really fuss or give any sign of aggression. I don’t know if it knew we were helping him, or what.”
After the bird was freed, the brothers removed the hood and held it up to take a selfie. Michael filmed Neil hoisting it up to shoulder height and giving it a push. The eagle flapped off into a nearby tree, where it stayed till the men left.
“I was surprised by the size, and that it’s such a beautiful bird,” said Michael. “When you see the eyes up close, they’re really amazing.”
They later contacted the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, who thanked them for freeing the eagle and said they would be contacting the trapper about setting the trap up differently.

**Eagle was fine – she was massive, and used talons to ‘punch’ the drone out of the sky. Hung around overhead so I got a really good look. Eagle’s health was my main concern also**
This is the last thing a small bird sees when a Wedge-Tailed Eagle decides that you are dinner…
Do not fly drones near birds of prey, they clearly attack seeing you as a threat or the right sized dinner. This will cost you money and potentially harm to the bird. This one was fine.. the drone needed some attention before it could fly again.
If you see a bird of prey while flying. Land. I have added this to my operating procedure.
