Golden Eagle hunting goat

This is awesome! Check it out.

The Golden Eagle has an average wingspan of over two metres and is one of the most well-recognised birds of prey on Earth. Their usual diet consists of smaller animals such as rabbits, marmots and squirrels, however, as you can see here, due to their huge size in advantageous circumstances they can take down much larger prey.

Despite their numbers being severely reduced due to the proliferation of humans and their colonies, Golden Eagles can still be found in Eurasia, North America and Africa. The largest recorded Golden Eagle, which was found in North America, had a body size in excess of 1 metre when measured and weighed over 20 pounds.
