Golden Eagle vs. Sika Deer

The golden eagle is a mighty powerful bird of prey. So powerful in fact that it has been linked to attack not only rabbits, squirrels, and other birds, but large mammals like deer and even bear cubs! And lucky for us, new evidence has captured one of these attacks on camera. During a routine survey with remote camera traps that was set up to study Siberian tigers in the Russian Far East, a golden eagle was observed attacking and killing a 7-month old sika deer, weighing approximately 88-100 pounds.
