It’s clear from this video that eagles do not mess around.
Watch as a golden eagle with a GoPro hunts a fox. “Hunt” might even be too generous a word. The eagle is like a fox-seeking drone missile, homing in on its prey.
The clip comes from a short film called “Eagle Hunters In A New World,” which GoPro also posted online.
The film is about the Burkitshi eagle hunters in Mongolia.
The description states:
“On the Western plains of Mongolia a nomadic group of Kazakhs continue the ancient practice of hunting with golden eagles. The Burkitshi are a small and dwindling community, eager to pass on their traditions in the face of growing modernization in Mongolia.”
