Bald Eagles Try To Fight Off Mother Brown Bear Who Ravages Nest For Eaglets

survival of the fittest.

Here we have some incredibly rare and raw footage of two of the most ruthless creatures in all of the wild.

We’re talking about a bald eagle and a mother brown bear.

When it comes to protecting her cubs, mama bear will do whatever she can to keep them safe and healthy until she lets them go on their own after around 3 years of age.

That being said, we have a mother brown bear with her cubs who had just sniffed out a bald eagle’s nest.

Seeing the opportunity at hand, she moves toward the nest despite a couple of eagles nearby. The pair of eagles will do everything in their power to defend the eagles in the nest, including knockdowns in pairs and smacks on the bear.

Unfortunately for the nest, the bald eagles don’t seem to pose much of a threat to the mama bear, who is ravaging the nest while the eagles soar hopelessly overhead.

And according to the person filming, the eagles were devastated:

“We visited Katmai National Park in Southwest Alaska from June 5-7, 2018 and participated in activities that very few people in the world are able to do. We stayed at a place called Katmai Wilderness Lodge where the guides are experts on grizzly bears and will take you to see them – VERY close.

On June 5th we saw this mother grizzly and her cubs resting on the edge of a cliff for the first time. We took some great photos and passed her several times throughout the day. On June 6, however, we saw something very different. At a spot not too far from where she had been the day before, we saw an eagle’s nest on a dead tree at the edge of a cliff.

Two eagles were sitting on it and the mother grizzly was very close to them. The grizzly bear and its cubs were eating grass right next to the nest and the eagles were very frightened. You probably annoyed the bear too much and she decided to attack the nest! She jumped straight into the nest and ate the eagles that were inside.

Her cubs watched from close range as the mother grizzly bear swooped in from the eagles soaring overhead. All of the footage you see in this video was taken by my father from the boat we were on. We were only 50-60 feet from this whole battle and it was such an amazing sight that we will probably never see it again.

Within two minutes everything was ready and the mother grizzly continued her day up the hill away from the nest. The eagles sat in despair for several hours after their babies were eaten. On June 8th the eagles left their nest and have not returned since. They have now learned their lesson not to build a nest within reach of a grizzly bear.”


Bald eagle pounces on brown bear and wipes his face

Eagles have been known to take some fairly large prey.

I saw them fall in small deer and dig in their claws, I have seen them Divebomb a fish so big they could hardly get it on land, I’ve seen them drag it goats right on the side of a mountain.

Hell, I actually saw a golden eagle swoop down on you in Asia 8 year old girl and try to fly away with her.

But damn bear? That might bite off a little more than it can chew.

My guess is that there is probably an eagle’s nest nearby, and this bird is just sending a message to the brown bear.

But still a pretty cool sight.

It seems like she went straight for the eyes, and who knows, with those sharp claws… maybe this bear is walking around with an eye patch these days.

Filmed near Naknek River, Alaska, you can hear the people behind the camera stunned by the attack:

“WHOA, did you see that?”

Maybe it’s time to book that trip to Alaska.

And while this is probably a fairly rare occurrence, it’s not uncommon.

This bear on Admiralty Island near Juneau, Alaska, also got the message from a bald eagle with a nest in the area.

However, unlike the other bear, this guy saw the attack coming and managed to avoid contact.

Bald eagle drowns fawn in lake

Nature is brutal, man.

According to MeatEater, this video is from Lake Noquebay in Marinette County, Wisconsin.

We can see a young white-tailed fawn swimming in the shallow shore waters of the lake when a bald eagle swoops in and lands right on its back. With its sharp claws piercing the helpless fawn’s back, the eagle pushes it deeper into the water and drowns its next meal.

“The eagle flew away after drowning the deer and dragging it to shore.

The raptor returned to feed on the deer for the next four days until only tufts of hair remained.”

And there was nothing left of this fawn…


Bald eagles attract large carp to the edge of Wisconsin Lake

Bald eagles are perhaps one of the most fascinating predators you can see in the wild.

Soaring high above it all, the mighty symbol of strength and freedom for the whole land, I mean it’s as majestic as a bird can get.

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to witness a hunt, you’ll understand. They hover or perch high, use incredible eyesight, swoop in and grab whatever the target is.

Your precision is simply amazing.

One of the few things that doesn’t disappoint when they fish you, that’s for sure.

This video from Hayward, Wisconsin shows something I’ve heard stories about but never seen. A bald eagle pulls a catch that is too large and is struggling too hard to retreat. It flaps its wings through the water to the shore.

“Look at that big fish”

The eagle pulls up what looks like a large carp, and it’s easy to see why it struggled to fly and had to swim to shore. It was big enough to feed more than that one eagle.

Kudos to the people who caught this on video, a once in a lifetime experience no doubt.

Here’s more of the people behind the camera:

“We lived in a cabin in Hayward Wisconsin on Chippewa Flowage. We were sitting in the living room overlooking the lake and noticed an eagle swimming towards our beach.

At first I thought it was injured, but then it swam to shore with a 20lb carp in its claws. It sat on the bank and ate the fish for a few hours and then came back in the morning and finished eating the carp.

It was truly an amazing sight! I’m glad I got to film it for others to enjoy.”
