Alps: Unique video shows an eagle nailing a goat, throwing it off the mountain and eating it

Incredible video shows an eagle in the Italian Alps grabbing a mountain goat, which weighs five times its own weight, before throwing it to kill it.

The video shows the moment a golden eagle digs its talons into the neck of a mountain goat, before lifting the animal into the air and throwing it away.

Despite the fact that the adult goat weighs five times more than the golden eagle, the extraordinary footage shows the predator grabbing the unsuspecting animal on the ground from above.

The brutal killing of the mountain goat, which the BBC says has never been filmed before, will be featured in Sunday’s episode of Sir David Attenborough’s Frozen Planet II.

The episode, called Frozen Peaks, shows footage of a pair of eagles mating and grabbing baby goats off the rocks of Italian cliffs and killing them before eating their remains.

Typically, golden eagles attack small goats and other medium-sized mammals such as rabbits, hares and partridges.

The raptor manages to drag the goat into the air before dropping it, and the two eagles were then seen eating the mountain goat’s carcass.
