The story is all over the place. I chose Huffington Post, interested in reading their comments. Everyone is supportive, moved, pleased, and happy. The only ugly remarks come from conservatives saying how out of character that is. And some people do not understand the sharpshooter blasted the branches around the eagle then shot through the rope and that's why it took 150 shots.
Imagine the poor exhausted bird during that hour. Stuck up there for two days, starving, dehydrating, dying and now ping, ping, snap, ping, pingchip, chip, ping, pause, ping-chip, ping ping, pause ping-chip, ping for an hour as the branches around you are destroyed but you're never actually hit except with flying chips and and bark and twigs and bits as the world around you is destroyed bit by bit. You'd be hanging there by your talon going, "HIT ME ALREADY!"
