SAN JUAN COUNTY, Wash. (KXAN) — A wildlife photographer captured an amazing series of photos in which a hungry eagle swoops down on a fox to steal its dinner.
Photographer Kevin Ebi was in San Juan Island National Historical Park in Washington state when he spotted a fox carrying off a rabbit. Suddenly, an eagle snatched at the meal, at one point even lifting the fox into the air, too.
Eventually, the fox let go, and the eagle thief flew off with its not-so-hard-earned meal.
Ebi wrote in his blog that the foxes actually aren’t native to the park, but were introduced to help decrease the overrun rabbit population.
