14 Best Hawk Attacks Caught On Camera!!
Hawks are large, strong birds. Their large beaks are hooked for biting and shredding flesh, and their feet have sharp, curved talons for catching prey.
Hawks can not only see farther than humans, but their visual acuity is eight times that of humans. If you want to see some spectacular hawks in action, keep watching, as we count down the 14 best hawk attacks caught on camera.
Predators of the iguana include birds of prey and the hawk is one of those birds. Watch this hawk attack this iguana, but what seems like child’s play for the big bird is not.
The lizard is powerful and keeps escaping the grasps of the hawk. The hawk has injured the reptile, but it is not able to seal the deal. It looks like this hunt is on the verge of collapse for the bird of prey. In this video, you can see how the hawk clamps its talons on the lizard and then jumps up and down to weaken it.
Once the mission is completed, the hawk takes the iguana back to the nest to feed its family. Finally, this hawk uses this iguana to skateboard on the grass. I guess it’s training for the upcoming Olympic games. Curiously enough, after enjoying a few moments of skateboarding at the Iguana’s expense, the hawk lets go of the reptile and takes off. I guess it had something more important to do.
Cat & Dog While hawks will not go out of their way to attack and devour a cat, especially because cats are larger than their usual prey, if they are hungry enough and have the opportunity, they will. In our first video, this hawk targets a smaller cat, holding it tightly to a fence by putting its talons on the cat’s head and squishing it.
This must be painful for the cat who tries desperately to free itself, but the hawk is too big and powerful. Once the hawk feels the cat is either weak enough or just plain dead, it takes off with it, probably back to its nest.
A man was sitting at his workstation when he noticed a huge hawk perched on top of a cat out the window. The man grabbed his phone and hurried outside to film what was going on, not wanting to miss out on such a rare up-close encounter. The hawk had complete control over the cat, and after it was weakened, it flew away with it. What an incredible sight to behold. A hawk and a small Yorkie were fighting for their lives in a family’s garden.
As another terrified Yorkie waited by and watched, the bird of prey viewed the dog as its next meal. A 15-year-old teen girl takes a seat cushion and begins pounding the bird in the head with it until it flees. The hawk allegedly cut a huge hole in the dog’s neck, but the girl managed to get her to the vet in time.
The teen said she’ll be keeping a closer eye on her dogs from now on. Finally, this poor kitten took its last breath at the hands of this fearsome hawk. The little feline had absolutely no chance of escaping the powerful grip of the bird. RIP little kitty!
