I understand there are many different types of eagles. Who said there weren't? I just said I had not heard that bald eagles' talons are weaker than golden eagles' talons. That may be true. My interpretation of what happened is based on the way it was described. It was stated, "My husband headed outside anyway, and the eagle proceeded to jump out of the run and ATTACK our barking collie." That sounds to me like the eagle could have flown away when it jumped out of the run. But the eagle did not fly away until the man ran towards it. That sure sounds like the eagle was trying to kill the dog.
