Golden Eagle Attacks Tennessee Tom Turkey
March 23, 2012
A Tennessee tom felt pressure of a different sort this turkey season when a giant golden eagle swooped in, talons flared, attempting to punch a mother-nature-provided tag.
The video was recorded by a trail camera owned by Ken Little of Waverly, Tennessee.
The video also shows the successful efforts of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) to restore the numbers of these two species, whose population had dwindled until actions taken by the TWRA, NWTF, Tennessee Wildlife Federation and American Eagle Foundation helped improve the outlook for both birds.
