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.

The Unalaska Department of Public Safety (UDPS) is investigating a tundra fire near Volcano Bay. The fire was reported by two area pilots earlier this month.

 

While the fire does not pose a threat to residents of Unalaska, UDPS is looking into where they fire started. At this point, they have been unable to determine a point of origin.

 

As of Friday, they estimate that the fire has burned 100 acres of land.
