Eagle Tries To Carry Off Boy At Bird Of Prey Show

Attend a bird of prey show and you expect to see magnificent animals stretching out their wings and snatching up prey for the sake of human amusement.

Spectators might even get hit in the face with a wing, or get a scare when a bird comes flying towards their head, but nobody expects to see a bird trying to take off with one of their kids.

But that's what happened at the Alice Springs Desert Park in Central Australia- a wedge-tailed eagle swooped down and sunk his claws into the head of a boy wearing a green hoodie, acting like he wanted to carry the kid off.

The eagle looked a bit confused about the situation as well afterwards, and witnesses say the boy was playing with his zipper during the show, which may have initiated the attack.
