pretty interesting. Couldnt tell how the eagles were killing them. That one wolf had a pretty good hold of that eagle then the other eagle attacked. Also, they looked more like coyotes than wolves. Would love to hear other opinions

I thought they looked more like coyotes also..... but that footage was from Mongolia...so who knows what it really was.

All I know is Eagles kill their prey by penetrating its flesh with their talons. Eagles can open and close their talons at will.

I missed signing up for falcon school this season. I had every intention of it and then before I knew it I missed the deadline. There is a lady over in Germantown that goes hunting with falcons. I love going and visiting her place.

Holy crazyness, fun video to watch. I never would have thought an eagle could do that.

I better keep a closer eye on the kids this summer, a couple eagles have been eye balling them when we are outside.

Holy friggin crap!! :shock: :shock: :shock: I never would have believed that if I hadn't seen it. You would think a wolf would do serious damage quick. They must be extremely accurate with those talons and get them into the wolves mouth immediately.
