Golden eagle droppings

We’ve all seen Eagle’s hunt, but the Golden eagle has a special hunting tactic. It uses this thing called gravity to create dinner out of some unlikely, and unlucky prey. The Golden Eagle has been known to take turtles and baby goats and drop them from heights in order to instantly kill them.

By time the prey hits the ground, they’re either dead or dying.

And if that’s not bad enough, mongolian hunters have been known to use Golden Eagles to kill foxes and wolves, as they are extremely ferocious predators. They actually use their talons to go straight for the heart.

OMG, the clip of the eagle diving as it follows the turtle to the ground is very impressive (but, poor little turtle!)
Also, very clever title 🙂

I liked the sit that you found this information. It gives factual information in a funny way. I was skeptical about this until I saw the third video. The Golden Eagle is crazy!
