Today I was running through the state park near my house. Was gonna do 7 miles and I was about 90 minutes into my run when an eagle came out of nowhere and took a swipe at my head. I didn't see it coming but could see it fly away after I fell to the ground. I don't know why it went after me. The only reason I can think of is my hair, which I guess looks sort of like a rodent since I have a small ponytail. I tried to tell a park ranger but he laughed in my face, even when I showed him the gash. I don't know what to do, and I'm afraid to go in the park again (cutting my hair is out of the question) unless I wear a hat I guess.
Any ideas to help me process the situation?
