(Menominee, WI) -- A Minnesota couple got a big surprise when a bald eagle crashed into their shrink-wrapped boat on Interstate 94 near Menomonie, Wisconsin. The "Chippewa Herald" reports the bird survived despite going through the plastic into the boat as Scott and Marilyn Kregness of Tower were towing it from Florida to northern Minnesota. Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release was contacted after the couple were unable to reach anyone from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on Friday morning. If the bird is in good condition, it will be released back into the wild but will be taken to the University of Minnesota's Raptor Center if it's unable to survive on its own.
