Golden Eagles are known to attack surprisingly large animals on the ground.

About ten years ago my dad was given a white artic wolf pelt . If anyone has 
ever seen one these are big animals like the size of a medium German Shepard . 
Now this is where it gets interesting , the way the pelt came about was my dad's 
friend was hunting caribou in the north , while they were tracking the caribou 
herd the saw a eagle swoop down and strike this wolf on the back I'm guessing 
somewhere behind its head . He said the eagle killed the wolf with one strike ! 
Has anyone ever head of an eagle killing a large animal like this before ? It 
must have been an amazing thing to witness ! The power of a great bird like the 
eagle .  Craig    Vernon
