YouTube user 1fishEguy uploaded this crazy video earlier this month in which he he has a close encounter with an osprey looking to steal his bass. The angler is fishing on a catch-and-release only fishery so he was careful to keep the bass away from the osprey.

Here’s what he had to say about the clip: “I wasn’t afraid of this animal but boy I tell ya, I was definitely using caution to keep from getting a talon dug into my hand or arm. And, it happened so fast you don’t necessarily know how to react. Talk about angry birds!”
