    Link: Golden Eagle Throws Goat off Cliff - A classic example of survival of the fittest. No blood or gore, but this is sort of sad. Not for everyone.

    Are you sure the goat was not already dead? It did not really react the the being grabbed by an eagle and thrown off a cliff.

    Why is it "sad"?

    Would it be any less sad watching an eagle starve to death on camera?

    I think it`s pretty cool, it`s not like it`s a rare occurance.. this probably happens hundreds of times a day. Yay nature, but I cant help but think.. My girlfriend is about 4`11" 95 pounds, What if an eagle.. yeah..

    Actually, birds are some of the smartest creatures you`ll ever find.
    And 643197, a Golden Eagle (along with many other birds) is perfectly MORE than capable of ripping you to shreds. Heck, why do you think some trainer wear gloves when handling birds.

    i agree Dainty. Animals are a lot more intelligent than we give them credit for. I`ve witnessed it first hand from certain species.
    Come to think of it, the story of how I met my pet dog is a good example...but probably boring to anyone but me...but damn, is she clever for a dog!

    Bloody hell, I never knew Golden Eagles were that strong! I would feel sorry for the goat, but hey, eagle`s gotta eat, and at least it will have died painlessly. Terminal velocity you see- there`s a height (can`t remember precisely, but the cliff was definitely above it) where if a creature falls, the body knows it won`t survive, so during the plunge the brain just shuts down. So for all you people who think it`s sad, the last feeling that goat will have had is the experience of flying :-) Isn`t that a pretty thought!

    Well that`s an interesting hunting technique. It`s actually quite funny in a horrible "that goat is so freakin dead" kinda way.

    Oh and SleepingSun, I`ve never heard of animals shutting down at terminal velocity. Tell me where is it you learned this bit of information?

    We learned about it in Physics in Year 11...it doesn`t actually die, the brain just sends it into unconsciousness, it`s the impact that kills it, but the last thing the goat will know is `oh god I`m flying and now I`m falling`. That`s assuming it`s a super intelligent mutant goat that can think in English :-P

    That`s about as sad as a lioness pouncing on and eating a gazelle.

    That said, that is one AWESOME way to hunt.

    As for the terminal velocity comment, I`ve never heard of that either and it doesn`t make any sense to me. I could see the brain shutting off because of panic, but not terminal velocity.
    OT: Cats have a higher survival rate the longer they fall DURING terminal velocity.
    It`s suspected that they have trouble stabalizing during acceleration but at terminal velocity when the acceleration is zero, they can easily control their position in the air.
    I wonder if it`s because they`re like "ZOMG I`m FALLING AND ITS GOING FASTER!" (aka, it`s a thing inside the cat`s head, which doesn`t necessarily have to be thought) or if it`s because the drag is irregular during acceleration and makes it difficult to stabalize o.O

    ^^sleepingsun... mate, it`s called terminal velocity because it`s he point a falling body doesn`t accelerate anymore due to increasing drag blah blah blah. It`s nothing to do with "terminal" as in death.

    And I`d like to know how they carried out the research about the brain shutting down- does anyone ask the goat?

    And peeps, it`s not sad, it`s nature. What would be sad would be 3 eagle chicks starving to death in their nest.

    Do you think it`s sad when you tuck into a Big Mac?

    Hah, I`d love to see my Harris Hawk try that xD

    Whoever said it was an imaginative way for it to kill, thats how most eagles kill, a Golden Eagle -could- kill a roe deer, it wouldn`t though, as predators are lazy. So in order to make up for this, it carries a 50lb deer close to a cliff, or about 8 meters up, and drops it. Drops it till it dies. They also kill turtles that way, usually dropping their softer underside onto a large rock in order to smash the shell.

    Gotta admit though, that was cool, far too cold in Scotland for (native) Golden Eagles, so I`ll settle with my Kestrel, Hawk and Snowy Owl 8P

    Can I just make a geeky comment and say that this is not a classic example of survival of the fittest. Not in the Darwinian sense anyway. It`s not as if eagles have evolved out of goats.

    It`s sad, but the eagle`s gotta eat sometime, and I doubt there`s a decent burger joint in the heart of a forest in the middle of a mountain range.

    I want one of those birds to guard my house. Maybe then my neighbors` dogs will learn to stop crapping in our yard. :/

    Actually it is a classic example. If a baby goat is stupid/careless enough to stray from the group, or get stuck on a ledge it can`t easily escape, it gets eaten, and therefore it doesn`t make it to adulthood and its genes aren`t carried on. Consider the eagles to be the chlorine of the goats` gene pool.

    What a cruel, sadistic drating eagle! Did you see how he was blatantly taunting the other goats? He really enjoyed it... drater. I`m not complaining so much that he killed a goat, that happens, but then coming back to taunt the goat`s family? And then taunting them a second time? Evil.
