Eagles

Unalaska is the national hot spot for bald eagle attacks. Biologists and law enforcement officials agree: You’re more likely to be attacked by a bald eagle here than anywhere else in the country.

You are most likely to be attacked by a bald eagle in the post office parking lot. 

Wildlife trooper Damian Lopez Plancarte has just escorted the first eagle victim of the season to the medical clinic. He points out the eagle perched on a nest.
