I'm not sure, but I think this is a golden eagle that is taking down this deer:

I nearly had a young horse I was training to drive taken down by a swan who was nesting under the bridge I was attempting to cross. Poor horse had a bit of a phobia about white geese ever since...

A man in Chicago was killed by swans in April. webpage

I almost had a heron land on my kayak by accident a week ago. The heron had a fish and wasn't paying attention. The wingspan is sick on those things.

giant birds hunting wolves is more insane than those mini weasel's that hypnotize rabbits then kill them.
I'm totally speechless.

This apparently was filmed in the Czech Republic. Canned hunt. There is a photo series of a golden eagle hunting a white tail deer in Illinois. The eagle slashed at the deers hindquarters causing wounds but the deer escaped. When I walk in the fall or summer I usually look down for copperheads, yellow jackets . I am going to keep an eye on the sky now.

Staged hunt? Poor puppies. I like the part on the video where the wolf grabs the attacking eagle and gives it a good kill shake. Just before it gets attacked again. And rips at the second eagle.

Bald Eagles attacking humans is known to be a problem in Alaska.

I guess that they think we eat too many of their salmon.
