This is the only recent Fark.com story with the tag "kilometers". The article writes "kilometre" but even Fark's link tagger knows Commonwealth countries can't spell.

"The rangers say they will be bolting down their camera in the future."

Sure they will, just as soon as there's a handy concrete slab to bolt it to somewhere in the wilderness, or a rock face where they can drill bolt-holes that won't mildew or crack in the weather.

/the footage is worth the occasional smashed camera, imho

The average, engorged penis is about 15,5 cm.
1 km is 100.000 cm, so:
1 km = 6451,6 penises

That was cool - esp. the 0.35 sec bit when we got to see the culprits face.

I know, right? It was obviously curious about its ill-gotten loot.

1.  Lug in a chunk of concrete
2.  'bolt' it to a stake or piece of wood.

I figure that while they say that an adult eagle would have destroyed the camera in it's usual 'kill it's prey by dropping it from a large height' strategy, an adult would also be less likely to take it in the first place, knowing it's not edible.

And the adult hawk knows that how, exactly? They do a Google Glass search so they can get a list of ways a camera differs from a can of tuna?

/wild animals don't always learn the lessons we think they should learn
//a hundred smashed cameras won't override that one time the human-made object burst open and released a pile of dog food, or spaghetti-Os, or even indigestible sweet corn
///food that doesn't fight back is by far the highest preference to any species that survives natural selection, especially predators
