For centuries there have been paintings, photographs, newspaper stories, and rumors of eagle attacks. They are hard to authenticate because when it happens, you probably won’t have a camera ready to snap a pic. Luckily, some people were able to get images and video and these are in the article.

For a distance in a flight of 100 yards, female eagles can carry three pounds and the male can carry two pounds. That doesn’t mean they won’t try to carry something larger and their talons can do some serious damage.
