Animals stealing cameras is quite entertaining. They don’t really do it on purpose. They often just mistake it for something else. Food, usually, or… a mate. Sometimes they are just curious. This particular footage, though, shows an animal one doesn’t often interact with. Bald eagles.
On this particular occasion, glacial researcher Matt Beedle was in Juneau, Alaska. Photographing the eagles from afar, he attempted to coax them in to land with some scraps of left over salmon. To get a closer view of the situation, he left his GoPro Hero4 Silver nearby. Just as one eagle landed on a piece of salmon, another grabbed the GoPro and flew off to land in a tree.
