|The eagle in action|
(Scroll down for video) A man thought he caught the perfect catch, but his dream ended when the big bird came flying in to have some lunch, according to video uploaded to the internet.
An eagle was seen snatching up a fish off the end of the fishing rod.
In the video clip, the bird is seen snatching the fish with just one scoop.
Fisherman Norman Dreger seemed off-balance right after the incident.
Dreger said: "This eagle stole a beautiful Dolly Varden right off my hook, then flew away along with my hook!"
The video has accumulated over 4 million views.
In other fish related news, it is not every day that an announcement is made seeking a mate for a fish, but what makes this announcement even more bizarre is that the announcement is looking for a mate for an ugly fish.
A London Zoo has launched a hunt to find a female partner for an extremely ugly but endangered fish.
The Mangarahara cichlid is about to die after dams built on the river Mangarahara, Madagascar led to a dry habitat.
Currently, the London Zoo has two male fish and are desperately seeking a female in order to help save the species. Berlin Zoo has another fish, but also a male.
London Zoo Aquarium curator Brian Zimmerman said: "They are not a particularly beautiful fish. They are
wonderfully ugly, unusual, more of a connoisseur type of fish. It might be too late for their wild counterparts, but if we can find a female it is not too late for the species.
We urge anyone who has or knows someone who may own these critically endangered fish, which are silver in color with an orange tail on top, so we can start a breeding program here at the zoo to return them from the brink of extinction."
“I am not sure why they call this particular fish ‘ugly’, as I have seen the pictures and I don’t think it is ugly. If I had the female fish I wouldn't definitely give it up in order to save the species from extinction. I hope the zoo finds a female fish soon,” Tara Valdez, 32, of London, England told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the endangered ugly fish.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
