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)

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.

orkhaa : the eagle clearly still has the rabbit.

Stephanie Edwards : Nature, you scary.

ah11980 : how income tax works! the government (the eagle) steals your money (the rabbit) from the people (the fox)

JRS2623 : At least the fox got away.

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.

BT Design : Everybodys got babies who are hungry.

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

Organ Gueler : Poor dogo

I hate my life : That's more dark and depressing than amazing

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

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

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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

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.

AndreasTube : Nice fake news in the end there.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

MrAbsentdriver : Hate eagle just like buzzards. Will shoot any that comes into my no fly zone.

Martin Amirtharaj : amazing..!!

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

_Srryforurloss_ Gamezz : He just got snatched

sirgrundel : Sums up America in one short video.

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

Get Good : When you gotta eat, you gotta eat.

Jennifer Lopez : this is really funny

mike t : eagles are pests

MP25DIII : Looks also like the fox grabbed hold of the eagle's left foot and was trying to fight and/or bring it down.

FOCOS DE GUERRAS : Que flagra em!!!!👍

Greg Hook : Amazing

giancarlo stanton : Freedom locked in like a missile.

Aidan Robertson-George : 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.

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.

Stonetta And the People : I am so confused...

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

Ted Vreden : AMAZING video, one of the best nature action movies i have seen.

James Lillegard : I would say that the

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!

herb dean : dude how high were you when u made this vid.... the eagle got the rabbit them look ballz

Lola Ohara : Какой нахальный орёл!

Leoverden Leo : Dark souls school!
