Eagle crashes into boat shrink wrap on Wis. Interstate

Posted:
MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) -- A Minnesota couple driving their boat home from Florida got quite a surprise: a bald eagle crashed through the shrink wrap while the boat was on Interstate 94 in Wisconsin.
  
The Chippewa Herald reports the eagle dove across the top of the pickup truck of Scott and Marilyn Kregness as they crossed the Red Cedar River near Menomonie, and crashed through the shrink wrap on Friday.
  
They kept going after only seeing a hole. But another driver told them the eagle was still inside. So Scott Kregness crawled around the back and found the bird between the motors, alive and upright.
  
Patti Stangel of Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release, Inc. in Colfax came out.
  
She says after the bird is examined it will be released, assuming it's in good health.
