Eagle Snatches Fox e

A bald eagle proved to be one of the leaders of the animal kingdom when video captured its takedown of a red fox that had just captured a rabbit.

In the video shared Monday on YouTube, we see the incredible moment when the giant bird swooped down and tried to snatch the rabbit right out of the fox’s mouth, according to Fox News.



Photographers Kevin Ebi and Zachary Hartje caught the rare moment that went down at the San Juan Island National Historic Park in Washington state.

In a blog post, Ebi explained he was watching the young foxes, called kits, hunt when the showdown at sunset occurred.

“Shortly before sunset, they started hunting. One fox managed to snag a rabbit’s foot. Several kits gave chase, but it made it to its den to feed,” the photographer explained. “About 15 minutes later, a red fox caught a rabbit and was carrying it across the meadow. I panned my camera with it to capture the action. Then behind me, I heard the cry of a bald eagle. I turned around and saw it approaching fast. I knew it wanted the rabbit. I intently trained my camera on the fox bracing for a split second of action.”

“To my surprise, the scene was even more dramatic than I expected,” he added. “I thought the fox would drop the rabbit, giving the eagle an easy dinner. Instead, the fox, with its jaw still clenched on the rabbit, inadvertently got snagged by the bald eagle. The eagle lifted the young fox and rabbit into the sky triggering an even more dramatic struggle.”

The whole battle lasted a total of eight seconds and the fox was not hurt.
