Golden Eagle Hunting. Mongolia | Planet Doc Express

November 19, 2019

An eagle scans the horizon in search of prey.
We are in the vast plains of Mongolia. The tension is high: as the first snows of
winter arrive, so does the hunting season for these falconers. The Kazakhs must wait for the winter to begin to hunt, as this will give time for their
eagles to breed and raise their young. They usually take up position on the peaks
after riding for hours: from here they can survey more territory than from down in the plains; and it is from here they will launch their eagles. The first potential prey appears. Now it’s just a question of releasing the
birds and letting them do their job. The eagle pursues its prey. The sheer size of this apex predator means that this fox has no chance of escape. And although the fox struggles, even biting its aggressor, the accurate blows of the eagle’s huge talons bring the fox’s end quickly.

  1. Wow that Eagle hit that fox like a beautiful, majestic, flying freight train. This is what hunting should be never for sport but only for what that animal can produce to keep u sustained. Nature and a beautiful symbiosis together

  2. Kaçma! Bu senin kavgan gerekirse aç kal
    Gözün belanın üstündeyken etrafını çakallar sarar
    Bir an yalanlar beraberken tamamda
    Biz ayrı düştük hayallerin düşerken yamaçtan

    Emek ne mi? Gel ve babamın ellerinden oku
    Bu güneş yüzüne doğdu dostlarında gölgen olur
    Burada kartallar göklerde değil hep çukurda solur
    Ve sakın sırt çevirme onlar elin kolun

  3. Ce sont les habitants du Kazakhstan, descendants directs de Chinggis Khan, amoureux de la faune sauvage au Kazakhstan, dont le symbolisme est l'aigle royal, le léopard des neiges et le loup gris.


  5. Amazing that man and eagle could establish this mutual relationship. Makes me wonder if we could have had such a relationship with the eagles long extinct theropoda cousins
