This is about as many livestock as wolves kill in year.  Presumably Idaho will be killing 90% of the eagles.

The eagle was probably just practicing 'touch and goes'.

That's as many as 5.4 tens. And  that's terrible.

Whoa. They should take it easy.

I thought the normal procedure was shoot, shovel, and shut up.

Pertaining to the headline, and its alternate veracity notwithstanding: reads, shoots, and leaves.

I knew ravens did this. Never heard about eagles.

It's Idaho.
Clearly the problem is that Mathews simply wasn't praying enough.
He better smarten up or god will send a plague.

I'm amused that this story was in The Hill.

Clearly, those sheep are a bunch of freedom-hating ANTIFA commie Muslim socialists.

Time for this rancher to put up some windmills.

Eagles are aggressive creatures. That is all.

Not honing his skills so much as bad at it due to poor judgement and lack of experience.  No eagle dives on an 80 pound animal for practice.  "I'll just stick my talons in a little and swoop on by without getting hung up. One of the big ones will do".

Why yes I was a bird in a previous life.

Well, they've matched the whole state's livestock losses to wolves now, so Idaho will now presumably be killing off 90% of the eagle population.

Two words:  Condor Attack.  Don't want that...

Seriously, though, I saw a nature documentary somewhere humans had fouled up the water, leaving the bald eagles without enough fish.  They filmed one killing a carribou - a creature roughly the size and mass of a compact car.  They'd just fly down and lacerate the hell out of its back, then ride thermals until it bled out.

My buddy watching with me said "I don't know about you, but I'm not as big or tough as a freaking carribou...  Though, to be fair, even without weapons, at least we can reach above our heads.

How hungry must they have been to go after prey that size?  And that much of it?

Winter fly fishing in Utah I was fortunate enough to be on the scene of many eagles performing trout extractions.  They alway got the big ones, and walking under their perch later was a weird display of trout guts in the snow.  Cool to watch, though.
