Golden Eagle Killing Goats

Golden Eagles are powerful hunters. Unlike Bald Eagles, which primarily hunt fish and often scavenge, Golden Eagles will take a variety of mammals and land birds. Last night, Lady Woodpecker tweeted this video of a Golden Eagle taking down a young goat.

There seem to be at least two different hunts combined in this video with the first and third segments showing the same hunt from different angles.
