When a wedge-tailed eagle gets hungry, it becomes wild and looks for just any thing. This is the terrifying moment a young boy was attacked by a eagle at a birds of prey show.
The boy, believed to be about seven, was left with a bleeding gash on his face after the eagle swooped on him during a birds of prey show at the Alice Springs Desert Park in Central Australia last week.
Horrified witnesses said the boy, who was visiting the animal park with his family was lucky to be wearing a camouflage jacket at the time.
