Iowa fish launcher ensures dramatic eagle photos
In this Jan. 29, 2014 photo Ken Kester of Clinton, Iowa, uses an oversized homemade slingshot that flings dead fish into the open water for Bald Eagles to to feed on at Lock and Dam 14 on the Mississippi River near Le Claire, Iowa. Kester, who built the contraption, calls it a fish launcher. It can toss a fish a couple hundred feet into the chanel where the water is calmer and eagles feel comfortable snatching up the meals.
