    I watched the fox and eagles clip and was very surprised the eagle survived considering the fox was well aware of the situ
    but more concern was towards the bird, as was in the Roe clip
    It's great putting such birds against such quarry but in truth where is the common sense
    there was not any

    The mongol people have hunted wolves with eagles for many years as a way to keep the numbers down and to catch them for fur. Its nothing to do with sense its about surviving. It may seem senseless to use who are tooled up with rifles, but to them its tradition and the only affordable method they have to hand.

    From my limited knowledge on the subject
    this is an age old tradition probably dating back to Ghengus Khan
    it was not a way of life or a method of control
    so nothing to survive in
    just there are some traditions I don't agree with others I don't see any sense in
    just like a tradition where you place a slit in the goats abdomen region , reach in and squeeze it's heart to kill it
    It makes no sense when you had a knife there already
    the ground they hunt is not animal rich or farmed for survival, so no need to control
    and the amount of pelts they would take in a year is probably enough to by a couple of pints in the local
    so no survival issuses on that count either
    I like watching birds work but hate to see them get injured for pleasure unesseceraliy
    and a 13lb bird rolling about with a 30lb deer or a 50lb wolf is not what I call common sense
    as for the rifle status I'm sure if you tried to steal a bird or 2 off them
    you would soon see where their natural abilities lay

    I have seen this film before. Flying Eagles at Fox and Roe is something that is a great tradition and is still carried out in parts of the world.

    As for any concerns about a Golden Eagle taking a Fox, well if you have stalked the Highlands of Scotland it is not uncommon to see Eagles chasing foxes, if you are lucky. A Golden Eagle is perfectly capable of taking a Fox and possibly a Roe if it needed to.

    I always think that much depends on the bird or animal, they are like humans all are individuals, some bolder than others.

    You can still do this in Scotland. We visited the Stewart crystal showrooms soem years back, sorry cannot recall it's location but they have falconary displays outside in the summer and there was fliers for Roe Buck hunting with Golden Eagles.

    A friend, who I have no reason to doubt, witnessed an eagle tackling a red calf last year in the highlands.
    The calf got away (aided by its mother). The eagle may ofcourse have been a youngster that did not
    Know its limitations.

    I dont think we should be too quick to criticise hunting traditions in other countries. We have
    already lost foxhunting & coursing, which I belive will prove to be the opening of the floodgates
    that will eventually lead to the end of all hunting for sport (as opposed to control). Let's all try
    to stick together.
    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"
