The video from southwest Missouri has gone viral – as a bald eagle carried its dinner down the street. 

It was shot last Wednesday, near Ozark, Mo., by Mary O'Dell and shared on her Facebook page. 

At first it was a very patriotic moment, then the eagle took to the air and it was a bit scary. 

"He's got food," O'Dell says in the video.

"Um, I'm rolling my window up," says he daughter in the back seat.

O'Dell told the Springfield News-Leader she shot the video from her driveway and believes the animal that the eagle was eating was a goose or duck.

"The kids were saying, 'Mom, there's an eagle! Mom, there's an eagle,'" O'Dell told the News-Leader. "I'm like, 'Yeah, sure, whatever you say.' Then I pulled out of the driveway and there's an eagle in the neighbor's yard. We were all just kind of freaking out."
