When An Eagle Takes Down A Deer

At one point or another, you've probably been to a buffet and took way more food than you could ever consume. But humans aren't the only ones who sometimes find that their eyes are bigger than their stomachs. That's precisely what this golden eagle found when he tried to scoop up a full-sized deer.

He may not have gotten far, but amazingly, he actually was able to take down the deer, as its carcass was discovered only a few yards away from where this picture was taken -half eaten by the eagle. Back in 2004, researchers found one that had taken down a brown bear cub, so this outrageous behavoir isn't unheard of.
