Default Eagle vs Cat ( Warning very graphic pics)

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.

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.

Another good reason why "house" cats belong indoors. Nice editorial.

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.
