Kudos to whoever’s idea this was… It’s pretty incredible seeing this graceful beast take down a fox in a a matter of a few seconds. It hones in on its target and on command, its instincts take over. The clip is from a short film called “Eagle Hunters In A New World”, about Burkitshi eagle hunters in eastern Mongolia.
The film’s description states:
“On the Western plains of Mongolia a nomadic group of Kazakhs continue the ancient practice of hunting with golden eagles. The Burkitshi are a small and dwindling community, eager to pass on their traditions in the face of growing modernization in Mongolia.”
Not everyone agrees on hunting, but what is certain is how different cultures over the world hunt. An eagle DEFINITELY one-ups a gun any day!
