Death match: Eagle takes down deer
« on: September 24, 2013, 07:36:46 PM »
From FoxNews:  full story: http://www.foxnews.com/science/2013/09/24/death-match-eagle-takes-down-deer/

A seemingly unlikely battle between a golden eagle and a baby deer was photographed by a camera trap set up to capture poachers seeking Russia’s endangered tigers.

The three images captured by the camera cover a 2-second period, and show an adult golden eagle clinging to the deer's back. Its carcass was found two weeks later, just a few yards from the camera, initially puzzling researchers.

'I couldn't believe what I was seeing.'

- Linda Kerley of the Zoological Society of London

The paper and images appear in the September issue of the Journal of Raptor Research. Authors include Linda Kerley of the Zoological Society of London and Jonathan Slaght of the Wildlife Conservation Society.

"I saw the deer carcass first as I approached the trap on a routine check to switch out memory cards and change batteries, but something felt wrong about it. There were no large carnivore tracks in the snow, and it looked like the deer had been running and then just stopped and died." said lead author Kerley, who runs the camera trap project. "It was only after we got back to camp that I checked the images from the camera and pieced everything together. I couldn't believe what I was seeing."

Slaght noted that golden eagles have a long history of eyebrow-raising predation attempts.

Yeah, I saw that today also.  Thought it was pretty cool.  O0   Pretty soon "some" bowhunters will want to put a bounty on Golden Eagles because they are too efficient in what they do and are decimating the deer population.  ;D

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Don't laugh. Some of these dildo brains in Georgia would put a bounty on eagles, hawks, owls, earthworms, bream, sunlight, Reader's Digest, Kindergarten and Swiss cheese.
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

didn't we have a vid here at one time where they were hunting deer with eagles ? The Eagle in the vid was a lot bigger than a Golden, but this pic is impressive none the less.
