Minnesota Moment: An eagle's massive dinner

Updated: August 16, 2019 03:50 PM

Nature never ceases to amaze.

A bald eagle was seen swimming across the St. Croix River Thursday night. Dan Goff, who captured the video, initially thought the eagle was injured.


But he was wrong. 

"We do see a lot of eagles down there but this one we caught in the act and he was after a serious game fish," Goff told KSTP.

The eagle swam to shore with a musky stuck on its talons. The fish was big enough to make anglers jealous.
