While the days of Cowboys in the Wild West are most certainly over, a new American frontier is just as dangerous and exciting today as it ever was. Alaska.
Alaska is home to breathtaking views and some of the world’s most deadly predators including grizzly bears and wolves.
But you and your pets have to keep an eye out for danger even if you’re home on your porch.
See what happened to one lucky housecat in the video below!
While resting on a porch ledge in Dutch Harbor in Unalaska, a small island on the Aleutian chain, Gizzie the cat wasn’t bothering anyone.
But then someone unexpected joined him for a shocking, and potentially deadly, interaction.
And that “someone” was an American bald eagle!
Although the video shows an incredibly close encounter, Gizzie was actually safe.
“These eagles are raised in a very unique environment,” said Facebook user Kimi Braun. “They are VERY used to humans, and routinely are found along railings, on pots, fences and other objects within touching distance of humans, foxes, cats, dogs. Food is also extremely abundant for them. It would be like hunting a deer in the middle of a Vegas buffet line.”
Who knew that a cat and a bald eagle could be friends?
