Video: Eagle Brings House Cat to Nest

It's a cat-eat-bird world out there most days. Seriously, house cats are responsible for killing millions, some claim billions, of birds every year.

But this eagle documented in Southwestern Florida turned the tables and scored one for the featherd fallen. The video shows one eagle bringing a feline feast to a nest occupied by its mate and two young eaglets. Nature really is metal.
