Heard of them driving deer over cliffs but never attacking them like that
The comments section below is, as ever, comedy gold!!
I'm particularly into the one suggesting 'the photographers' should be reported to PETA and the RSPCA for not intervening. Must be a troll. Surely...
A lack of more easily obtained food would certainly cause a golden eagle to have a go I should think.
There's the usual numpties commenting on there of course. I believe half of them think that normally animals live forever, or die peacefully in an old animals home. And of course there's the usual skewing and sensationalising by the Daily Fail.
I saw this ages ago............
Up here, the red deer are real scared of eagles, I've seen a face full of hinds and calves cleared when the mother came over with that years chicks, in october. Same place, in october, came on a real knackered calf in a burn up to it's chest, we shot it and it was full of punture wounds behind the shoulders, from talons. My cousin has sea eagles nesting on his ground and he says they're hammering the calves.
