I saw one carry off a ground squirrel but a crow screamed and flew straight at it. The squirrel survived, seems crows aren't fans.

Blimey!
I'm only surprised that the video camera owner abandoned filming to try to stop it; I'd expect most people to stand around filming and generally being worse than useless.

Having seen what our sea eagles will lift and carry off, I am not surprised in the slightest. People appear to have no comprehension that to many animals we, homo sapiens are nothing more than a potential meal. Its going to be interesting in the next few years when more folks have their cats and dogs taken by the sea eagles re-introduced by RSPB/ SNH without much thought as to the consequences of their predation. I just wonder if little old ladies will be as keen on these animal 'charity’s' when they see tiddles being lifted by a flying 'barn door.'

You say that like there is a downside, the more cats that get eliminated can only be for the better.

The wee dude must have shat itself, one minute sitting in the park, and the next been hauled up in the air, jesus!

Its a sad refelction of our YouTube society. Only the other day I saw an old lady trip and fall. She was moaning on the floor for over fifteen minutes and as I filmed, not a single passer-by stopped to help.
Some years ago Mrs OT was Christmas shopping in a shopping center in the Essex suburban wastes when an old lady collapsed. The usual cluster of clueless wibblers and rubber neckers gathered around her. At that point, a young man stepped smartly forward. He picked up her shopping bags and legged it through the crowds.

She might have had frozen goods and he was runing to her freezer?

As a former professional falconer I have hunted Roe deer and fox with Golden Eagles in the Czech Republic.
Most raptors are simply awesome predators and the eagle group, when committted are deadly to say the least.
The Czech falconers group I hunted alongside stopped using certain dogs with the eagles at one point as several were killed.
In Siberia and elsewhere, the falconers use eagles to hunt wolves from horse back!!

hunting wolves with a golden eagle in Mongolia. Kazajstán-Ky - YouTube

A toddler caught out in the park and especially if wearing a fur coat and hat especially could be considered fair game to a hungry eagle in yarak however, I am inclined to believe the eagle in this case had possibly been imprinted on humans, perhaps by being released on conclusion of release scheme or lost/released falconry trained bird. Interesting!

You're the one poisoning them all aren't you?

Nah, I quite like them, however they do come with issues attached which the RSPB/SNH have been quick to deny so as to avoid paying compensation for taken stock.

Sometimes they get it drastically wrong though. I never forget as a kid my Mum and I were walking our dog in the fields near our farm. Out of nowhere a buzzard swooped down and made a dash for our German Sheppard; who in return, leapt up and caught the bastard firmly in his jaws. It was at that point I realised our dog had been more than patient with me in the past when I'd teased him and found myself with a renewed repsect for our awesome guard.

Sadly though, this was the early 80s so there were no video cameras or smart phones around to shoot, upload and get accused of being fake by some Canadian retards named "Jake22" and "Hotgirl123".
