A pair of bald eagles are attacking a flock of sheep near Murtagh Lake, Idaho. The birds have managed to kill 54 animals so far.

So cool. Awesome take from the rancher. What a cool bird

As a farm kid in my youth, we would have never allowed that kind of loss before we made some changes! IT is crazy to me that so many were taken before they realized it. Must be a huge flock and left on pasture without protection of any kind? Still though mother nature at work! The regular food did not show up, time to find a new food source.....too bad our orcas could never figure that out! Lol

@Rainier10  said in another thread he was told that you just gotta shoot all the raptors to protect the quail. Apparently the same goes for the sheep!!




(*don’t actually shoot all the raptors*)

Raptors are overrated

:yeah:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

So cool. Awesome take from the rancher. What a cool bird

A cool bird takes 54 of your livestock out and I'd bet you'd beg to differ.
