A healthcare executive says he saw an eagle snatch his sister's little white dog.

Felipe Rodriguez says he was visiting his sister in Pennsylvania when the eagle took the 8-pound Bichon Frise from her yard and disappeared over the trees on Tuesday.

A biologist says eagles are capable of taking a small dog or cat, though it is rare.

Zoey the Bichon lived to bark the tale: A motorist found her some four miles away.
