A brave female Yorkie managed to escape the clutches of a bald eagle after the bird of prey swooped down and snatched her from her owner’s backyard in Canada.
Doorbell images from the home in Metlakatla, located in British Columbia, captured the June 16 encounter.
Justin Dudoward, Coco’s owner, said he and his girlfriend let their Yorkie out while they were sitting in the living room.
The black-and-white-colored dog seemed to mind her own business, biting pieces of wood from the porch of the house before anticipating the bald eagle’s attack at the last minute.
A Yorkie named Coco was caught in the clutches of a bald eagle earlier this month while biting swathes of forest from the porch of her owner’s home in British Columbia, Canada.

It was too little, too late, as the eagle successfully grabbed the pet before hitting a trash can, causing the Yorkie to scream.
The eagle then flapped its wings as it struggled to nail the dog with its claws and can be seen struggling to take off from the grass.
Seconds later, both animals move off the camera, but Coco can still be heard squeaking loudly, before suddenly reappearing in the video and rushing to the house.
At that point, Dudoward said he heard his daughter scream and opened the door to let their frightened dog back in.
The Yorkie emerged from the scratch with a few scratches on her abdomen, caused by the sharp claws of the bald eagle.
Dudoward took Coco to the vet the next day after noticing that her bowel was hanging out.

Fortunately, the little dog recovered after three days of treatment and is still hanging out in the backyard of the house “like nothing happened to her,” Dudoward said.
“It was really scary. We didn’t realize it was this bad until we went back and looked at my doorbell camera,” Dudoward told Storyful.
DailyMail.com has reached out to the Wildlife Rescue Association of British Columbia for comment on the incident.
Bald eagles can carry up to four pounds of weight, according to Out There Colorado. They usually prey on rabbits, squirrels, snakes, and other birds, including ducks, geese, and coots.
To avoid losing your dog to an eagle, owners are advised to use reflective metal tape called “scare tape” to deter birds.
Bird spikes, hawk roof nets, scarecrows, and bird balloons also work to efficiently repel birds.
