Sea Eagle Steals Video Camera and Records 70-Mile Flight

By Ben Romans

On Monday, researchers in Australia released a clip of a sea eagle that snatched a small video camera from a study site and recorded its 70-mile getaway flight across the country’s landscape.

Researchers placed the camera along the Margaret River last May to capture images of crocodiles, and when the camera disappeared, they assumed it fell into the current. They only recently reacquired the device after it was found on the banks of the Mary River. When they replayed the footage, they discovered the real culprit.

Why post the title with 70 mile get away other than to try to catch more readers. LAME reporting. It was cool the the eagle took the cam but to lie just to get viewers is typical or false stories & reporters now days.

That has got to be the fastest bird on the face of this planet to go 70 miles in under a minute! Don't report if your gonna bait and switch F&S as there are still honorable folks out here that want to believe you and if you keep this up your no better than current media outlets!

The description said the researchers released a "clip" of the footage. I don't think it ever claims the entire flight. Besides, do you really want to sit and watch a 2+ hour video of a bird carrying a camera 70 miles?
