?When they attack bigger animals, they like to go for the eyes,? he said. ?For general hunting, a lot of time they grab the animal instantaneously, and the talons enter on both sides, between the ribs, and puncture the lungs. Then they sit and watch, and wait, or come back later.?
Dude. Just dude.

Listen. And understand. That golden eagle is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

they're so cute

?Comparing their physical strength and food habits to bald eagles, the golden eagle is an aggressive, successful predator, and the bald eagle is a really good scavenger. How often do you see a golden eagle at a garbage dump??
bahaha bald eagle = pwned !

I knew they were fearsome (I always wondered why the US chose the smaller bald eagle as its symbol, then again, we have the beaver :laugh:) but I never thought one eagle could tackle an adult caribou. :shocked:
My grandpa who is a biology teacher told me this and I thought it was pretty crazy having the bald eagle for our bird instead of the golden eagle too.

lmao. read some of the bleeding-heart comments on the first video. Take this one, for example:

"It is sick. Reminds me alot of what the chinese do with dropping cows out of dump trucks to get savagely murdered by tigers for money and entertainment. Chinese are not human, they are monsters and anybody that wants to debate that needs to see those videos. They are truly sick people. Deeply disturbed.

Oh and fuck the people who did this to the deer. Dont tell me they just happened to have their cameras on and they caught this."

:shocked::laugh:
