In a battle between Americas symbolic bird of prey and Florida mans nemesis, a Parrish man said not on his watch.
A male bald eagle sat at the edge of a pond behind his home in the Copperstone subdivision when the alligator clamped its jaws on the bird Wednesday.
Its our bald eagle. Its our treasure, Anderson, who is also going through chemotherapy, told Fox 13. It stands for who we are and what we are.
A neighbor called Justin Matthews of Matthews Wildlife Rescue and he arrived clad in a cowboy hat and camouflage cargo shorts.
The eagles legs were rendered useless and blood trickled from its throat.
I knew that it wouldnt make it, Matthews told Fox 13.
Matthews then took the eagle to Save Our Seabirds, who then took him to a veterinarian in Osprey, according to Matthews Facebook post.
Unfortunately, the eagle had to be euthanized.
The wildlife rescuer said that Anderson is the reason the bird died peacefully, commending him for his efforts.

God bless America.
I surprised they didn’t arrest the man for interfering with a bald eagle. I hope a feather didn’t drop in his house.
The alligator voted for Hillary.
well that’s cool.... I would love to hold a bald eagle, ya better be thankful it was injured otherwise it might have taken a chunk out of yer azz.
With his last chirps.
He still could be arrested.
Reminds me of the bald eagle that was found in the grille of a car after a hurricane. The bird was removed safely and treated for its injuries. But the look of the eagle in the grille was like “a little help here, fellas?”
Probably get a ticket from Fish and game for “Looking with the intent to observe”.
The eagle left an eaglet and a mate. Fortunately the eaglet is nearly ready to fledge, so mom should be able to care for it by herself.
Good for him. God Bless Them.
Bald Eagles often perch near the sides of a river, Ben Franklin saw it, I’ve seen it.
I can see how one might be vulnerable.
Yep, that’s it.
“Um, fellas- little help here?”
All that matters to leftists is intention: The man intended to affect the life of the Bald Eagle - it was deliberate; the wind farm operators do not intend to affect the Bald Eagles’ lives - it is by accident.
Being a leftist is easy: You can make up any excuse to attack a conservative.
