An ambitious wedge-tailed eagle attempted to carry a boy away at a wildlife show in Australia while he was seated right in front of his parents!
The Eagle overshot itself a little, attempting to pick up the boy who is thought to be around 8 years old like a small animal. Although the boy sustained a gash after the Eagle landed right on his head, there was absolutely no chance the Eagle would have succeeded.
The management of the wildlife show confirmed the attack in a statement;
“On Wednesday, 6 July, an incident occurred at the Alice Springs Desert Park where an eagle made contact with an audience member,”
“A thorough investigation regarding the circumstances behind this incident is under way and the eagle will be removed from the show while this investigation is ongoing.”
