Eagle that jumped on woman on North Shore caught by US Forest Service

The bald eagle that jumped on a woman on the North Shore on Thursday has been captured and sent to rehabilitation by U.S. Forest Service.

According to a statement from the U.S. Forest Service, the eagle flew toward a technician who, due to experience handling large raptors and the correct equipment, was able to capture it.

The bird was transported safely to rehabilitation at Duluth Wildwoods.

There are a few scenarios where bald eagles approach people. In this case, the bird was a juvenile and it was likely very hungry and was possibly fed by people before, the Forest Service said.

"This is a great example of why it isn’t a good idea to feed wild birds!" the statement added.
