Golden Eagle Attacks and Catches Deer. A golden eagle has been filmed attacking and killing a sika deer in the Russian Far East. Golden eagles have been known to hunt large mammals but predation of an ungulate species in this area of the world has never been documented. Linda Kerley with the Zoological Society of London inadvertently captured the images while studying Amur tigers and leopards.
