Seems that this eagle's dinner was a little too ambitious.

An eagle can carry a deer head?

I saw one pluck a full grown raccoon off the riverbank and fly away with him. The raccoon was trying to struggle free until the eagle dropped him from about 100 feet and went back and picked him up. Pretty docile after that.
