As a matter of fact old Ben Franklin once proposed that the turkey, which he called a true and original American, would have been a more appropriate national symbol. The Eagle, he maintained, was lazy and cowardly and "a bird of bad moral character." But the turkey , Franklin argued, was not only a respectable bird, but a courageous one who "would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards."

It is doubtful those who chose the eagle as the national symbol of the USA ever witnessed three of them fighting over a strand of fish guts on a beach in Alaska. This image is reminiscent of that scene.
