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