Falcon with camera on back takes down duck (video)

Kind of a wild video.

A guy puts a camera on his pet falcon, and the thing taks off, then kills a duck.  It’s pretty amazing, in a wild-kingdom kind of way.

The video isn’t gruesome, don’t worry.

    Don’t worry, there are plenty of others like you. No need to be ashamed of who you are. Even if you were the only one in the entire world, there would still be no need to be ashamed of who you are.

    The irony of people shaming someone for being themselves on this blog…

    I’ve seen enough death in my life. I’m into living right now. I know, that’s just CRAZY!

  4. Oh, I don’t know about that. There was a video of a tiger at the zoo eating a squirrel recently that I watched, it was fascinating watching it catch the squirrel, but also bothered me, so I didn’t post it. Yes, animals get eaten in the wild, doesn’t mean it’s not creepy to watch if you like animals. People dying is natural too, but it’s not fun to watch, trust me.

  5. Yeah, that was annoying. LIke all the vids on you tube that they add music too, drives me nuts.

  6. That was my sense exactly. The way the thing started swooping down and circling, you’d have no way of knowing it was actually going after a particular target – it was simply amazing.

    I’m not sure I consider a sense of empathy so over developed that you cannot face the natural order a healthy thing.

    Like a fighter jet. And they way the falcon vectored in on the duck… amazing.

    Very cool. But somebody needs to take the special effects buttons away from that guy–especially the spinning text.

    I’m a coward. I admit it.

  11. Fortunately you don’t really see the duck being killed. But you know it’s happening

    I couldn’t watch the whole thing because of the duck murder, but I love the Falcon-cam part. That’s amazing.
