Golden Eagle Snatches Toddler Off the Ground; Toddler Okay, Eagle Feels Like a Total Dick (VIDEO)
Damn, that's scary. I had a similar incident happen a few years back with my dog. An enormous hawk swept down on Snowy, made a pass, but either missed her or changed its mind. (That hawk must have been desperate. Snowy weighed nearly 50 pounds, far too much for the hawk to lift, so I guess she must have looked much smaller from high overhead). I was just a few feet from my car, so I got to my golf clubs and pulled out my driver, intending to wind up with all my might and slam that bird about 285 yards down the fairway if it returned, but it did not.
