This Is What It Feels Like To Be An Eagle (VIDEO)

Have you ever wanted to fly like an eagle?

The video was uploaded without explanation, leaving the viewer to wonder if the eagle is a pet and how the camera was placed on its back. The man visible at about 21 seconds into the video might be the bird's handler.
