“We were staying in a cabin in Hayward Wisconsin on the Chippewa Flowage. We were sitting in the living room with a view of the lake and noticed an eagle swimming towards our beach,” The people who took the video said via the description.

“At first, I thought it was hurt but then it swam to shore with a 20 LBS Carp in its talons. It sat on the shore and ate the fish for a couple of hours and then came back in the morning and finished eating the Carp.
