Video: Golden Eagle Attacks Wild Turkey

It’s cool wild turkey video Friday!

An Eastern wild turkey gobbler (with one heck of a beard) calmly feeds in the leaves near a trail camera — and is suddenly attacked from the air by a golden eagle. For a second there, it looks like the turkey might not escape.

Then again, every hunter reading this knows you can never count a gobbler out of cheating death. Been there? Me too. They find a way to survive.

Ironically both species — predator and prey — are part of ongoing wildlife restoration efforts by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, as well as the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Tennessee Wildlife Foundation and the American Eagle Foundation.
