Eagles steals camera, takes selfies

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

A motion-sensor camera set up to film wild life in Kimberley, Western Australia, that got snatched by a young eagle six months ago, has recently been retrieved, with the above footage.

The story, on ABC News:
Aboriginal rangers had set up the motion-sensor camera at a gorge on the Margaret River in May, to try and capture images of fresh-water crocodiles.

Gooniyandi ranger Roneil Skeen says the camera disappeared not long afterwards.

"Unexpectedly our camera went missing so we thought we had lost it because it fell into the water," he said.

But a few weeks ago, they got a phone call to say a Parks and Wildlife ranger had found the small device at the Mary River, about 110 kilometres away.

They have been able to extract three 30-second clips that reveal the culprit to be a thieving sea eagle.
