Eagle vs seagulls
US Department of Interior / David Canales

PRINCE WILLIAM SOUND, AK -- In football, Seahawks and Eagles are even. The two teams have played 14 games in NFL history with each team winning 7 times.

In mother nature, it's a much different story.

The US Department of Interior posted this photo showing a bald eagle in an epic battle with two seagulls.

The post says David Canales captured the picture while kayaking on Prince William Sound in Alaska. The eagle had one of the seagulls firmly grasped in its talons while another seagull was trying to protect his friend.

So who won the fight? Not the seagulls.

The US Department of Interior says the seagull who was trying to fight the eagle from above eventually gave up, and the eagle, which never lost its grip, flew off with the other seagull as its prey.
