Cameras capture eagle killing deer in Russia
In this photo taken from a remote camera at the Lazovsky State Nature Reserve in the Primorye region of Russiaís Far East on Dec. 8, 2011, a golden eagle attacks a deer. Remote cameras set up to track Siberian tigers in Russia have caught a golden eagle attack on a sika deer, snapping three photos as the massive bird digs its talons into the distressed animalís back. Golden eagles typically eat small birds or mammals, but theyíve also been known to target deer. Itís rare for a camera to catch such an attack in progress.
