Evi Tthought : I can clearly see without a doubt in slow motion part the eagle flew away with the rabbit in his right leg. The fox was not fighting the eagle (eagle could have killed the fox easily). The fox was unlucky it got caught but eagle dropped the fox (left leg) and took the rabbit (right leg)

orkhaa : the eagle clearly still has the rabbit.

QWERTY1980 : how income tax works! the government (the eagle) steals your money (the rabbit) from the people (the fox)

Peggy Dare : Wrong info here- the eagle got the rabbit. Check the Seattle Times article

C North : That fox is not unharmed. You can clearly see his face, possibly even his eye socket, got hooked by the talon.

usethefooorce : "Unharmed"?? Pause at 0:16 or 0:17, you will see that the eagle has the fox' face in the talons of its left foot. Ouch. The rabbit is in the right foot, and the eagle flew away with it.

Stephanie Edwards : Nature, you scary.

Tim Wilson : Is that a bear or a mountain lion in the background?

BT Design : Everybodys got babies who are hungry.

justreallybored : I live in Illinois and Bald Eagles are becoming a nuisance. Peoples cats are being killed. We have a pug and have to stand in the yard to make sure a Bald Eagle doesn't carry him away when he is outside doin his business. I'm very serious about this. They are eating everything.

JRS2623 : At least the fox got away.

Mark Rice : All very well until a child becomes eagle chick food! Man them bird's are strong.

Joseph Dittli : Looks to me that the eagle had his left talons clutching the fox's head and his right clutching the rabbit. He drops the fox and leaves with the rabbit. I don't know if he dropped the fox because of its resistance or simply because he couldn't generate enough lift to carry both at once... but I suspect it was the latter.

erfoolak : The fox definitely got some injuries from eagle claws and the impact.

gibles3000 : Imagine the puncture holes in that foxes face....he is gonna die..

Blackice 12345 : Eagles are notorious scavengers. They would rather steaL then hunt for themselves. It’s easier and smarter if you think about it. And they steal from each other as well. It’s nature.

JABS991 : Fox is lucky to not get its head ripped off.

Vik Baddhaus : BEHOLD the magnificence of mamalian peripheral vision and fear response. I for one am damned PROUD of that little suckler. I hope he gets some fresh eagle eggs for breakfast!

TheCadillacCat : It's gotta suck to be in the middle of the food chain.

k11401 buitienthinh : that fox was downright lucky. I think the eagle was aiming directly at the fox, not the rabbit. One hook to the skull or spine was more than enough to kill it instantly. Luckily for the fox, he turned his head around and the rabbit took the blow for him. If he had kept running without turning back, those claws would have brutally sunk in the fox's spine.

ColdieHU : Not sure the photographer or uploader actually watched his own footage. Eagle clearly flies away with the rabbit. Not so sure about the fox not being injured. watching it in slow mo, one can clearly see that the eagle grabbed the fox in the face. Looks like even it got a claw in the fox's eye.

det Bits : ABC can't even get the facts of this video straight lol. The eagle clearly took the rabbit in it's right talon, while it's left talon was hooked onto the fox's face. Watch in 0.25x speed 1080p pretty clear.

Organ Gueler : Poor dogo

AndreasTube : Nice fake news in the end there.

Stressed Teenager : That's more dark and depressing than amazing

mahal holiday : Interesting. There’s a video of a golden eagle dragging goats off a cliff.

F.O .X : yeah go get them fox!!!!!

Deirdre Bernal : Leaked footage of Fox vs. Falco, but with an eagle.

Xiao Houzi : Even if the eagle managed to take the rabbit from the fox, I know from experience that you should never try to take food away from foxes.

frank panzer : American international policy explained with animals, the American eagle steals resources from the poor fox

Terra148 : Eagles . . . . yeah, the USA symbol, but man . . . getting so many issues the past decade or so with them scavengeing and being brave enough to come in close and perched above houses, acreages and farms . . . . Well, we're 'all' part of the natural system and 'we' take care of our own as well!

kinachahue : I don't like eagles for a couple reasons but mainly because they are the symbol of war nations from the Nazi's to USA and many in between. It tells you who runs those countries - the same asswipes.

voteZDLR : I kept waiting for the Pterodactyl to swoop up the Eagle which had the Fox which had the Rabbit.

troybridgeman : America - you’re country is being stolen from you by a snake oil salesman and you attack this video as fake news. If the photographer that was actually there says the fox got his rabbit back then I am inclined to believe him. He has far less reason to lie than the flag draped vulture you parrot every day with your “fake news” mantra.

Dapperdan Man : If the eagle still had the rabbit it would be hanging from its talons and clearly visible. The fox got a free ride but tenaciously kept its meal. Everybody has to eat.

mike t : eagles are pests

SPICY BIRTHDAY CAKE : I'm seeing comments about the fox getting hurt by the eagles talons, but I think that the eagle just grabbed the bunny and the fox went up because it was biting the bunny.

QuIgYx : Im proud they are our nation’s animal.

Dapperdan Man : Just watched it at .25 and it’s clear the eagle won the struggle.

CNN FakeNews : Don't mess with a bald eagles lunch!

AcelaRailfan2150 : Fox: Minnesota Vikings Rabbit: New England Patriots Eagle: Philly

Toribot : It's crazy the fox heard the eagle and turned to defend its food just amazing.

Cristian Martinez : Anyone else spot the second fox off in the distance?

Pun Jab I : Dumb incorrect news reporting even on stuff like this. Why such huge concern over the fox? Eagle did snatch away the rabbit.

rawimpact : ABC always there to deliver fake news....

thewoodpost : you can't believe a word ABC is saying are showing fake news

Queleimporta Pene : This clearly proves the existence of god.

Private i : Looks like there's another fox sitting, looking on from the top of the hill at the end of the video.

SheltieShangriLa : Yeah, unfortunately it does appear the eagle got the rabbit. Poor fox. But moreso, poor rabbit.

Dustin H : if you call a talon in the skull unharmed
