And for the same reason that the story was chosen for publication:
Bald eagle attacks government drone and sends it to bottom of Lake Michigan
Drone was about 162ft in the sky when bald eagle attacked and tore propellor off, possibly mistaking it for a rival bird or snack

The only thing preventing it being on the front page is that it didn’t happen on July 4.
