If a Harpy Eagle can carry off a monkey I would not be at all surprised to see one carry off a baby.

that'd be pretty badass, no lies. I've seen merlins smack doves off tv antennas and that was pretty cool...Eagle vs. baby would be insaaaane.

inb4 everyone gets mad at my jokes.

Also I feel bad for the eagle in the movie. Shot, skinned, mounted and then used as a movie prop.
