Something seems to be in the air about animal attack stories, and I’ll have more to say on that later. In the meantime, here’s another breaking story about a new one.
An 11-year-old boy has been injured when an eagle attacked him during a walk through the woods in near Copemish, Manistee County, Michigan.
Radio station WKLA reported Alex Birch was attacked by the eagle about 9 p.m. Sunday, May 25, 2008, in Copemish. He was treated at a local hospital for numerous cuts and scratches to his back, head and neck. It was not clear what led to the attack.
Copemish is located in the northern portion of the Lower Peninsula about 25 miles southwest of Traverse City and 105 miles north of Grand Rapids.
