This footage was taken at Mallard Lakes subdivision in Baton Rouge. Apparently someone had shot a nutria, and it was floating dead in the water.

I didn't know that an Eagle could do that! Just one more reason that it makes a great symbol for our nation! Strength, courage, and resourcefulness! Thanks for posting that Bill!

We have a lot of Eagles around here but I have "never" seen one do that before. Thanks for the video lead.

Very nice footage. That resourcefulness is one of the reasons eagles are so widespread now that we have stopped poisoning them with pesticides. When I was a boy you never saw eagles here but now they are a common site. We often see them over our property and they take ducks from the run behind us.

Cool ! I 've watched them catch fish a lot. But That Critter probably weighed more than the eagle.
