Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
And that is perhaps the best display of how govt coercision and "naturalist" lefties yield a freakish outcome. With a natural balancing of the bird population, this eagle would have never been hungry enough to consider snatching a child in a park. Some will blame overcrowding of population but bottom line is a wacked out policy to protect birds has yielded an overpopulation in an urban setting. Thanks PETA and other lefty freak groups.
And that perhaps is the dumbest statement I've ever read.
Been in wildlife related industries since my freshman year at Auburn in 1992. And you?

If you would please cite studies documenting the overpopulation of Golden Eagles in Quebec.
Have you considered the possibility that this particular eagle was sick, and maybe had trouble obtaining it's natural prey? There are other possible reasons for this freakishly rare event, but overpopulation of Golden Eagles is not one of them.
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
-George Petrie (1945)
I must read more than you... cuz I've read some stuff lately that makes Nujac look like a Nobel Prize winner...
I was actually thinking in light of this nearly tragic event that the government should place a ban on these almost lethal birds of prey... but then I thought, what if I wanted one - as a pet?
Then I thought... well never mind. My thoughts don't count because my degree is totally unrelated to this "wildlife, balanced ecosystem, what's wrong with the world discussion" anyway.
Besides the world is gonna end in another 48 hr's or so...

On a lighter note...
I've always thought it would be cool to put a bulldog puppy at mid field of the uGay game and let our beloved Eagle get a real meal instead of that morsel they tease it with.
Think that might fire up the crowd? And shock those Jawja Rednecks so bad that we don't have to listen to the one and only song their band knows how to play at the same time.
STUDIES!!!! So, you actually think scientific studies are the basis of environmental laws? Seriously?
Keep fooling yourself...bad science or no science has been the basis for too many environmental laws and restrictions. Look no further than "climate change" and the dumbass red snapper regulations and you can clearly see that studies have nothing to do with this nonsense. I would discuss the beach mouse as well, but you may be offended.
When did I say studies were the basis of environmental law?
nujac said Golden Eagles were overpopulated in Montreal and I asked him to show how he knows this.
The climate is changing, it has been changing for about 4 billion years or so, and I expect that to continue.

"The thing about quotes from the internet is that it’s hard to verify their authenticity." --Abraham Lincoln
You do impersonate a pigeon rather well
Living here in Gulf Shores I know all about the govt. stupid regs about the beach mouse.they are protected,Ann there are heavy fines if you destroy their nesting areas. So to take care of this problem most folks have a beach CAT. How do you like that PETA. My cat loves them.......
For you experts...I noticed in the video that the Kid was wearing a read beanie that had Eyes or something on it. Could that have fooled the Eagle into thinking it was some other animal, possibly an injured one, rather than a human?
