So this isn’t exactly from the point of view of an eagle as much as it’s from the point of view of an unlucky mouse. The Gooniyandi Rangers, an Australian Aboriginal group similar to American park rangers, inadvertently captured this video when a sea eagle stole one of their cameras and flew with it some 110 kilometers. They had originally set the motion-triggered camera by a river in hopes of catching some footage of crocodiles. Australian broadcaster ABC News has the story.
The rangers believe the eagle must have been young, because more experienced eagles normally drop captured prey from a great height to kill it, ABC News reports.
Our rookie eagle friend lives in the Kimberley region of western Australia, a tropical area the size of California that’s home to many unique animal species.
