Bald Eagle Flies Off With Photographer’s GoPro

When photographer Mason Colby set up his GoPro to capture footage of the bald eagles in the area, he didn’t expect that one one of the majestic creatures would instead capture his camera and fly away. Luckily, the camera was later found and the wonderful footage remained intact.

Set up my go pro next to some salmon heads from the days catch to film the eagles eating and next thing I know, one of them swoops down and snags the camera right off the ground. It carried it up to a mile away and I lost sight of it. For four hours we searched in the rain until I finally found it and the camera was still intact. So glad I got the footage!
