Came upon this last year out west on the side of the road. Don't know if the eagle made the kill or not but he sure made a meal out of the cat. Wished I had better lighting but it was around 6am when I saw this. Notice the last shot in the tree, he/she needs a bath! To cat lovers everywhere, sorry!

When I first saw your title I thought Oh no, poor eagle until I opened it up and saw it's poor puddy cat. I'm not a cat lover, I don't hate them either..I would say the cat was probably hit by a car? and the eagle was just doing what they do!

Great captures.

This is nature and the survival instinct. Nice captures.

Last year I saw a huge raven picking apart a raccoon that had probably been run over. Gruesome and fascinating at the same time.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

I'll hope that the cat was killed by a car first, but since it is a tuxedo puddy tat, I had to cover Mr. Squeak's eyes from this sight (see avatar). He sits in my lap while I am at the computer.

I really like the last shot, a majestic and poweful pose.

Puffed out chest and bloodied beak tells a strong story.

As for the cat, I always hate to see animals die (especially domestic animals) but it's the way of nature.
