A few days ago, we were lucky to witness a bald eagle scavenging this dead headless animal. He was determined (hungry?) enough to let us come really close and watch.
I’m sorry to say that on closer inspection, it looks like a domesticated dog. With no head anywhere to be found, it’s hard to say though. It’s always sad to see dead or dying animals and yet death is a natural part of life. It’s not something you can ignore- especially when you live more rurally as we do.
It was an incredible sight to behold! We were all in wonder watching this bird yank and pull such a heavy beastie around. After a short while (and a few evil eyes thrown our way) we left him to his meal in peace.
