Photographer Shoots Epic Battle By The One Minute: Eagle Hunting An Adult Fox And Rabbit

Bald eagles are unquestionably adept hunters. They can see a fish from a mile away and fly there in less than a minute.

Photographer, on the other hand, recently photographed a particularly spectacular instance of stealing. He witnessed a bald eagle snatching a rabbit from a juvenile red fox. Even more impressive: this duel took place more than 20 feet in the air at points.

It happened when He was photographing foxes at San Juan Island National Historical Park in Washington state.

They began hunting shortly before dusk. One fox was successful in capturing a rabbit’s foot. Several kits after it, but it made it back to its den to feed.

A red fox had captured a rabbit and was taking it across the meadow some 15 minutes later.

Don’t worry, the fox was unharmed. The entire combat lasted less than 8 seconds.

“A couple of days ago, I captured an especially dramatic act of thievery. I saw a bald eagle steal a rabbit from a young red fox”

“A red fox caught a rabbit and was carrying it across the meadow. I panned my camera with it to capture the action”

“Even more impressive: at times, this battle played out more than 20 feet in the air”

“Then behind me, I heard the cry of a bald eagle. I knew it wanted the rabbit”

“To my surprise, the scene was even more dramatic than I expected”

“I thought the fox would drop the rabbit, giving the eagle an easy dinner”

Kevin Ebi

“Instead, the fox, with its jaw still clenched on the rabbit, inadvertently got snagged by the bald eagle”

The entire airborne battle lasted around 8 seconds, bringing a whole new meaning to the term ‘flying fox’
