"Salmon vs. Eagle"

Photo Clip: The Graphic (1921)

London, England

As British Columbia's fishing season got underway, there was no doubt that it was going to be another successful season and that weeks of hard work lay ahead. But one lucky fisherman had a feathered helper.

An eagle swept down from the sky and into the water beside the fisherman's boat. Not expecting the events that followed, the fisherman watched in shock as the eagle was dragged beneath the surface by a large salmon that was locked in its talons and putting up a tremendous fight. When the eagle gave up the battle and rose to the surface, the fisherman plucked him out of the water to lend him a hand. Moments later, the eagle's catch rose to the surface having been mortally wounded in the fight.
