farking falconry bird mauls little girl -  bird retrieved to glove of the austringer rather than bashed into meat while girl leaves crying and grasping at her facial wounds - nope, not going to Kyrgyzstan, and fark them and fark that

The girl was in a restricted area.  If anything the bird, which could have killed the girl, just subdued an intruder.
 
2020-09-17 8:16:49 PM  
Oh yes they will.
If they think they take it then they will try given an opportunity.

This sounds like an investigative attack. Like white sharks.
I don't know exactly what it is but it is small and moving around. Let's have a look see.

Look it's a simple matter of weight ratios. There is just no way a 15 pound eagle could carry an 40 pound girl.

Two of them could carry her on a line, held behind the dorsal guiding feathers.

Now I'm just waiting for QAnon to explain how the eagle was part of a worldwide human trafficking operation.

Where's the Fark Brigade, here to explain how it was the little girl's own fault for looking like a muskrat in a light-coloured background from a bird's-eye view? How little Kzerghixszyann girls should know better than dressing so provHAWKitively so it serves her right, etc. etc.?

A Harpy eagle might have had food for the kids there.

Kind of surprised it got the kid off the ground.

It was her fault.  She was wandering in a restricted zone.  Well okay, it's more accurately her parent or guardian's fault for allowing her to wander around and enter a restricted zone at an event like this.

The headline didn't say "horngry."

Well of course, the eagle doesn't technically need to carry off the child, it's just good predator logic to carry it up into a tree where you can dine at your leisure out of reach of competing predators and scavengers.

But if necessary, the eagle could have just killed her there and torn off a few chunks to swallow.

Nah, both the longpigs (story and vid) are too old for a bird to lift.

Bird should find a suckling longpig, not a sitter.

It didn't. It was fake. I remember seeing an interview or article with the person that made it.
It's also pretty old which is why I can't remember the details.

I recently saw a hugh jass falcon take down a wolf (or fox). Flew in, swooped and grabbed that prey.
As the prey rolled on the ground, the falcon maintained controlled from the top position and kept it pinned until the handler ran up and slit the prey's throat.
At that moment, in the close up, you see that the falcon had one set of talons grabbed near the shoulders, and the other actually had the wolf's mouth grabbed shut.
It was amazing to witness.

I call bull on the line about the certainty of the eagle killing the kid if it had tried. Yes, the eagle might have been confused, but even if it was trying, an 8-year-old kid would at least instinctively try to cover their neck with one arm and thrash with the other. It would at least be more of a contest than 'bird experts' make it out. Birds aren't as likely to get an insta-kill strike as a big cat is all I'm saying.

Look, I bet I've played for Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania than you, and to put it bluntly, you're wrong.

But what is the airspeed velocity of unladen eagles?  Could they carry a a coconut?

I've seen Eagles up close and personal and those talons are serious shiat...
Even a "oh hi-ah there, how ya doing?" can cause serious injury.
