WATCH: Bald Eagle's Daring Robbery Captured By Anxious Angler

While we all certainly enjoy being outdoors, at least to some extent, there is a necessary respect that must be paid to the dangers of American wildlife.

In parks such as Yosemite and Yellowstone, visitors can get up close and personal with any number of native creatures.  Some are benign and make for great photo opportunities, while others pose a serious risk to those who dare underestimate them.

Now, one fisherman has had a close encounter of his own, seemingly out of nowhere.

Nicholas Batchelder was ice fishing in Windham, Maine, on Jan. 11 with some friends when a bald eagle swooped down and helped himself to a meal.

Batchelder and his friends had made their first catch – a small perch – while fishing on Little Sebago Lake when they saw the bald eagle eyeing them from up above, News Center Maine reported.

Quickly, Batchelder set up his GoPro camera and set the perch out on the snow to entice the eagle to come closer.

The stunning video has been shared thousands of times via Facbook since Batchelder posted it.
