    In this thread I got a nature video of an eagle flying off with a baby mountain goat. They can't take off flat ground with it but he took it off the mountain side and gained enough wind under his wings to glide it a very very long way. Also I linked to a site with Eagle faq's that explains weights they can carry under certain conditions like what that mountain goat went through.

    It actually hit the news in SC, when I was younger...Some idiot left their 1 year old out while they were taking care of their other child...and vultures swooped in and fed. You gotta understand that vultures don't eat just what's dead, only what can;t help itself. And a 1 year old czan't help itself. It was a really awful story, and I still wanna beat those parents to death.

    Ravens kill newborn calf's all the time, it is a very brutal death since they are not really equipped to kill. I would imagine a human baby left unattended might just meet the same gruesome fate.

    I went to the Phoenix Renassiance festival and they had a birds of prey show and one was an African vulture of some kind. He had to have his hand well gloved when he fed him a chicken leg he stripped that thing down to the bone in about 4 seconds. He said because there is so many predators there the vultures have adapted to eating as fast as they can. He said that if he didn't have his glove on his finger would look like that chicken leg in less time.

    OK, I didn't read the whole thread, I imagine on steep enough ground with a good updraft it is possible.

    This hoax was debunked by ABC news. The bird was not a golden eagle, but another kind of eagle that is not native to North America.

    It's impressive and scary. I'm just glad they don't get any bigger than they are now. We'd definitely be targets. Just as that teenager was in that other vid I posted in here that the hunting eagle attacked. Insane stuff.
