Angry Birds: Police Called to Break Up Bald Eagle Street Fight
The eagles were playing a real-life game of "Angry Birds" before the authorities stepped in and gave them a time out.
The city of Plymouth said in a Facebook post that Officer Mitch Martinson responded to a neighborhood on “a report of two bald eagles stuck together on a Plymouth roadway.”
The Plymouth Police Department posted images of the incident and aftermath on Twitter.
Officer Martinson spoke to WCCO-TV and said being called to break up a fight between two eagles was a first for him.
“We do have de-escalation tactics, but I’ve never applied them to eagles or other animals,” Martinson said. The officer consulted with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Raptor Center, which told him the eagles were likely in a dispute over territory.
