A Spearfish couple is keeping a closer eye on the outdoor wanderings of their Shih Tzu, after the small dog almost became lunch for an eagle.
Al Shumaker says seven-month-old Popeye was roaming his backyard last weekend when a bald eagle spotted the dog and swept down for an easy meal. The bird's talons didn't catch, though, and the eagle ended up only bowling over the small dog.
Shumaker says the eagle flew up into a nearby tree and perched there for about 15 minute before spying a pheasant - which it successfully caught and ate.
Shumaker says he or his wife now keep watch over Popeye when he goes outdoors.
