Watch this startled fisherman lose his catch to an unlikely thief

It’s hard enough catching a fish, never mind having to worry about something snatching it up once you’ve caught it.

But that’s exactly what happened to this surprised fisherman who found himself the victim of a fish heist, perpetrated by a bald eagle.

Don’t blink or you’ll miss the bird swoop down and grab the fish with its talons. While it seems like quite a feat for the eagle, it’s common for these birds of prey to catch fish without the aid of a fishing line.

Luckily, the fisherman didn’t lose his rod in the process, though he does have a lot of reeling in his future.
