The owner deserves a 'hero' tag for telling people that the attack happened b/c humans are encroaching on the animals habitat. He said he would be "sad" if anyone killed the eagle (which, of course, is illegal).

Feisty little wiener dog survives bald eagle attack

There was a certain drunken sexual encounter I had awhile back that I oft describe with that exact phrase.

You know, those CIA drones are getting pretty good.

Hey, i bought a weiner dog last week... good to know she can survive an eagle... now if she just wouldn't crap on the carpet we'd be set.

I've got a 7 year old weiner dog, they'll always crap on the carpet. That is if you do not keep them completely happy. Scold them, leave them behind when you go out drinking, whatever. Prepare for crap.

The breader we bought her from also sold carpet cleaning machines, tried to make it a package deal. I should have ran screaming then.

Weiner dogs rock!

I want an Eagle to attack MY weiner! Hahahahahaha! I am GOD!

That is so cool:)

The radio talk shows said that the dog was dropped from 40 feet - not 300. Shoddy journalism at best.

eurytion: I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw sexual innuendo in the headline.
 
2002-03-16 11:03:48 AM  
Huh, I wasn't aware that bald eagles ate weiner dogs. How come I never saw this on National Geographic?
 
2002-03-16 11:05:58 AM  
get a bigger dog
 
2002-03-16 11:08:09 AM  
That's why people shouldn't let their pets outside with out keeping an eye on them! but I would like to see a bald eagle try to lifet my cat, she probably wieghs more than the bald eagle!
 
2002-03-16 11:13:17 AM  
Was the eagle wearing an uncle sam hat? Was the wiener dog wearing a german spiked helmet?

Wildlife laws don't kill weiner dogs, eagles kill weiner dogs

If it wasn't for unconstitutional Endangered Species bills, I would have found the eagle who did this to my dog and he'd be dinner for the night.

Man rules this planet, you protect the animals more than the humans and you have to face the consequences.

"The radio talk shows said that the dog was dropped from 40 feet - not 300"

The article said the eagle carried the dog for 300 feet...not that it dropped it from 300 feet up. Probably just 300 feet away from where it picked it up.

I owned a weiner dog for 16 years. They're ornery little bastards, surprisingly aggressive and resilent for their size. I'm not surprised the eagle dropped it. It was probably afraid of getting its ass kicked.

And for the record, in all the years I owned him, Goliath the daschund only crapped the floor five times. There are human beings with lousier track records than that. I suspect you people aren't training your dogs correctly.

I have a Great Dane and the neighbors mean nasty weiner dog always chases her. If she would just turn around and step on it.....
 
2002-03-16 12:39:44 PM  
The bald eagle is a protected species.

Oh, thanks for clearing that up.

Don't blame the eagle, it just misinterpreted the advertising campaign.

HMMmmmmmmmmmm.........Weiner Dog.

I hope an eagle craps on emerils windshield.
 
2002-03-16 01:08:53 PM  
it didnt say dropped from 300 feet...it said carried 300 feet.
 
2002-03-16 01:13:04 PM  
Hey Emeril, the earth doesn't belong to us. We belong to the earth.


Anyhoo, if an eagle attacked my dog, I'd just start training him/her to kill eagles. You think you'd get fined (or jailed) if your pet killed a bald eagle? I don't know, but I wouldn't think so.

'Hey Emeril, the earth doesn't belong to us. We belong to the earth.'

You may belong to the Earth but I belong to Jesus and I am here on Earth for a short time before returning home. This is our world, we should be able to do whatever we want to with it. Most Enviromentalists are Green Nazis, seeking to restrict our god-given freedoms.

'Anyhoo, if an eagle attacked my dog, I'd just start training him/her to kill eagles. You think you'd get fined (or jailed) if your pet killed a bald eagle? I don't know, but I wouldn't think so.'

Oh, yes you would. Many people have been put in jail for years for killing endangered species in self-defense. If the species were so great, how come they weren't able to fight off near-excinction without Green Nazi dictatorial supports?

Enviromental laws are unconstitutional, repeal all of them.

Emeril said: "You may belong to the Earth but I belong to Jesus and I am here on Earth for a short time before returning home."

People have been saying that for 2000 years. It's 2002, dude. I don't think he's coming back.

It's short-sighted people like you that have put the planet in the mess it's in.
 
2002-03-16 01:53:01 PM  
Some questions come to mind when reading this article. Are weiner dogs German? And of course we know the bald eagle is America's bird....hmmm, sounds like WWII between pets, and the Germans are winning. Okay, I'll stop talking out of my ass now before too many people start ripping on me.
 
2002-03-16 02:28:46 PM  
There are no little wiener dogs.

Only little wiener dog owners.

2002-03-16 04:23:11 PM  
I guess the eagle didn't like German food.
 
2002-03-16 04:45:21 PM  
Yeah, I think wiener dogs are technically German. "Dachshund" means "badger dog", since the little animals were originally bred to hunt badgers.

Or so I've heard. I'm not entirely sure on this.
 
2002-03-16 05:06:12 PM  
I'm surprised the fiberal numbnuts haven't called this a hate crime.

The earth is my ashtray. HA HA HA HA HAAAAAA!
 
2002-03-16 08:38:57 PM  
I wonder if THIS is waht happened to that little brother I used to recall bugging me all the time?
 
2002-03-17 02:04:23 AM  
Hey Emeril, everyone knows that the Earth belongs to the I.P.U., peace be upon her.

Feisty little wiener dog survives bald eagle attack

Let's assume for a minute that the eagle had eaten the dog. Does that now make the eagle an eagle with a bald little d1ck?
