Should we name him Enoch? ;-)
If you’re talking turkey buzzards, they only go for carrion.
I saw a crocodile take a goat once; dragged it backwards into the water by one of its hind legs. The goat reappeared a couple of times bleating loudly, then disappeared. About five seconds later it burst out of the water like Superman and took off into the undergrowth at Mach 1. Got some pictures somewhere. The goat probably escaped because it was early in the day and the croc, being cold-blooded, was a bit sluggish.
One lucky critter.
Nature's not cruel, it's just nature. I've never seen anyone crying over a hamburger.
perfect example of "circumstantial evidence"
I'm not an eye-witness, but I'm pretty sure what happened.

We don't have Turkey Buzzards in Wales... we have this sort;
Big bird snatches bunny rabbit aftermath photo op ....
So many hawks here now.
10 years ago? Nope.
I’d see the buzzards from the zoo but hawks ? Uh-uh.
Now , some summer afternoons I’ll have 10 minute conversations with them (my movie sound effects level hawk cry is good enough for them)
we did have a gigantic chipmunk explosion in the last two years but I’m thinking it’s the rats...
That Bunny just cracked open a Red Bull and got it's Wings
I saw a chicken hawk carry away a chicken bigger than it was.
Round these parts the raptor tends to make a scene at the scene, rather than grab & go.
Sucks to watch and I've intervened a few times but only when I was certain the injuries were survivable.
Watched a chicken hawk debone a live dove.
Bigass bird hauling off a bunny with nary a pause though, what do you have there that can pull that off so cleanly?
Maybe bunny was a baby?
Dead or alive?
Maybe they don't carry them off in my view because they see my yard as a fine dining room?
They do take the small birds off my deck but will sit and eat only a few yards from the house, even if the prey is 1/4 their size.
I saw a bald eagle fly over last week, the first one I've seen here in my whole life going back to the '60s, though i wasn't here from '84- 2008 except for visits.
Seen bald eagles up north and we get the bigger golden eagles here plus lots of smaller hawks, but the bald eagle was a surprising first.
The bunny was most likely singing:
or... Maybe bird was a Bald Eagle, we have daily eagles here. (not my photo) Last summer on my gravel long driveway, there was a big eagle standing maybe 20 feet from the road behind a barb wire fence. It just stood there when I stopped. I think it was just holding some prey it had on the ground. I swear as it stared right at me when I stopped the car that it's eyeline was nearly up with mine sitting in the car:
This had it's eye on me while walking the dog today.
Well...since nobody else has posted it yet, here you go:
Did anyone hear a bell ring?
We fostered a kitten about 18 months ago. He was no more than a day or two old when he was found in an engine compartment at church. He's remained with us and thrived. He's not very big but he kills many rabbits and the occasional squirrel. Birds too. He's the most affectionate cat I've ever seen, and the second most deadly killer. I'd be lying if I didn't admit some satisfaction in his prowess. I understand falconers.
I'm for the coyote, when he cleans up the neighborhood of these "lovely kitties" that are wiping out all our songbirds.
There's a reason "Katzenjammer" is a bad thing; not a good thing. Gimme the songs of birds, every time. Better than guitars.
