Fox hunting with a Golden Eagle

In the Altai Mountains in Mongolia the vast open spaces make hunting for animals almost impossible. It’s a clip of  a Kazakh hunter in Mongolia who forms a partnership with a Golden Eagle in order to hunt a Red Fox. A tiny camera strapped to the eagle gives an eagle-eyed view of the Altai mountains as it swoops on its prey. This sequence was shot last year while making the documentary series Human Planet.
