Homer to halt eagle handouts
The city council voted this week to stop a feeding program next winter. No longer will the eagles receive handouts of herring, halibut and salmon.
The ban on free meals does not affect Jean Keene, aka the Eagle Lady, until 2010. The Post says,
Her daily gifts of tossed, freezer-burned fish to crowds of begging, but fiercelooking, eagles have lured thousands of professional photographers from around the world to Homer. They shoot (and later sell) spectacular pictures of the birds while never straying more than a few feet from their warm SUVs.
