In Utah, bald eagles are getting sick and dying and no one knows why!
So far, at least 16 eagles have died since the beginning of this month alone!
That's so awful!
Of those dead birds, half were found already dead and the others died or were euthanized while in the care of wildlife officials.
Thankfully, a lab in Madison, Wisconsin is doing blood and toxicology work to try and find out what's going on. Sadly, there won't be any results for a few weeks.
The problem is, because officials have no idea what's going on, they have no clue as to how to treat or prevent it.
The symptoms are pretty scary. The birds have weakness in their legs, then one leg goes paralyzed, followed by the other. After that the birds get head tremors and eventually seizures. They die in about three or four days.
Wildlife officials are now advising people not to touch the birds should they see one and to instead contact the Division of Wildlife Resources.
This is kinda way scary! We hope this isn't an Outbreak style scenario!

Wow… this is seriously some of the most beautiful GoPro footage we've ever seen!
We've never wanted to be an eagle more than right now! LOLz!
We don't know why no one thought of this sooner but we don't care. It exists now and that's all that matters.
This is seriously the most American thing we've ever seen… even though it's French.
It was filmed in the Chamonix valley of France's Mer de Glace annnnnnd we're just gonna overlook that fact.
USA! USA! USA!
So do you wanna see what it's like to fly like an eagle??
Then check out the video (above) and prepare to have your mind blown!
You’d think a flower show would be free from danger but not this one!
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall made the rounds at the Sandringham Flower Show on Monday, and Charles got a little treat.
Zephyr the eagle was waiting near the end of their tour, and like the brave man he is, Prince Charles put on a glove and held the over 10lb bird of prey.
And he was smiling while he did it!
No fear here, despite the fact that the wings almost hit Charles at one point.
The lesson learned is that even when visiting something as innocent as a flower show, you can still stare a bird of prey in the eyes.

Seattle's July 4th fireworks show is going to have to make some adjustments because of some very cute, fragile little critters.
There's a pair of cute, baby bald eagles nesting in a tree near the shore of Lake Washington, where a floating launch pad normally holds the massive amount of fireworks used in the grand celebration.
This year, the barge is going to be moved about 350 yards away from the nest, so there's less of a chance of disturbing the bald eagles.
The problem is the babies are only six to eight weeks old, so they can't fly yet.
Fly eagles, fly!!! Fly into the sky with your AHMAZING cuteness!!!!!!!
The Southwest Florida Eagle Cam is allowing the world to spy on a pair of elegant eagles and their two babes.
But don't worry! The camera does not affect the eagles or their habitat so there's no need for a guilty conscience watching this new guilty pleasure!
The cam provides 24/7 access to the active birds and their Facebook page (HERE) gives even more deets on the cuties.
Watch the video (above) to see as much eagle love as you want!
