Is it an eagle sandwich with two seagulls ganging up on the U.S. national bird?
Or does the eagle emerge victorious?
An amazing photograph posted in a tweet from the US Department of Interior showed an eagle clutching a seagull in its claws while another seagull is perched on top of its head.

The photograph was taken at Prince William Sound by David Canales has sparked tons of comment.
@Interior Eagle: I'll rip you to pieces with my claws! Seagull #2: Yeah? Well…I'm-a-pull one of your feathers out Seagull #1: (dead)

The question of who won the epic battle was answered by the Department of Interior.
@pauldeichmann the eagle. The seagull above the eagle gives up and the other one isn't able to free itself

That led one patriotic tweeter to remark:
@Interior And thats why our national bird isn't an seagull 😉
