Bald Eagle In Michigan Destroys Wildlife Mapping Drone

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning I'm David Greene. Drama in Michigan's skies recently. It is eagle versus eagle. An actual bald eagle destroyed a wildlife mapping drone. The device belonged to the state's department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy. The agency's acronym is EGLE. They go by Eagle. And now they have a drone resting at the bottom of Lake Michigan after a real eagle ripped off a propeller. One state official said, quote, "Nature is a cruel and unforgiving mistress."
