Ea­gle swoops down and tries to CARRY OFF seven-year-old boy

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

This is the ter­ri­fy­ing mo­ment a young boy was at­tacked by a wedge-tailed ea­gle at a birds of prey show at the Alice Springs Desert Park in Cen­tral Aus­tralia last week. The boy, be­lieved to be about seven, was left with a bleed­ing gash on his face. Hor­ri­fied wit­nesses said the wed­getailed ea­gle sank its talons into the boy’s head as it tried to pick him up ‘like a small an­i­mal’. The boy screamed as it went for him but was for­tu­nate to suf­fer from lit­tle more than a scratch. The show was quickly can­celled and the boy taken off to first aid.
