Boy, two women carried away by bald eagle

Ham Lake, WI -- July 10, 2007

Two women and a boy were carried away by a bald eagle while canoeing on Ham Lake in Sawyer County today.

Carrie G-----, of Philadelphia, PA, and Sue S-----, of Ann Arbor, MI, were canoeing with G-----'s son, Timothy K------- - G-----, also of Philadelphia, when the trio spotted a bald eagle.

Upon returning to the cabin where they were spending their vacation, G----- and S----- urged K------- - G----- to tell the other members of their party what they'd experienced.

"We saw bald eagle!" cried K------- - G----- over and over.

His statement was repeated, with only slightly less enthusiasm, by G----- and S-----, who added, "It must have circled above us for five minutes!," and, "Wow -- we saw a bald eagle!"

The other members of their party confirmed that the canoeists were carried away.

"They were pretty clearly carried away by the bald eagle," stated Stasa M----- - A----, of Ann Arbor, and Kathleen K------, of Philadelphia, K------- - G-----'s mother. "We were very excited for them."

M----- - A---- added, wistfully, "And slightly envious."

K------- - G----- added, "We saw bald eagle!"

We saw bald eagle, too! Ours was in Banff.

I've seen two since we moved to the midwest: a juvenile on Lake Michigan last summer, and an adult on Lake Superior last fall. But Sue saw two in July -- one in River Falls, and one on Ham Lake. I admit I am envious!
