A hungry eagle ate a dachshund, which participated in a rabbit hunt in Sweden. Zoologists warned several days before the incident that unusual cold in Europe might show negative influence of wild animals and birds in terms of their conduct. Scientists said that wild animals might approach towns and smaller settlements in their search for food.
No one expected that a hunting dog would fall victim of a hungry bird of prey. The authorities will pay a compensation to a dog’s owner. According to the Swedish law, the government is supposed to compensate owners for the loss of their pets, if that loss is caused with bear, wolf, wolverine and eagle attacks.
