    VIDEO: Webcam catches bald eagles feeding cat to young
    By Dave ByknishPublished: April 28, 2016, 3:48 pm Updated: April 28, 2016, 3:52 pm

    PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (KXAN) – A Tuesday feeding frenzy caught on an Audobon Society webcam is causing quite the stir on the internet.

    According to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, a pair of 6-week-old bald eagle hatchlings were waiting with their mom when dad arrived with a fresh meal. Unfortunately for everyone watching at the time, the meal was a cat.

    Cue internet meltdown.

    According to the Western Pennsylvania Audobon Society, after reviewing the footage, they believe the cat was already deceased but reiterate the birds’ circle of life is much more grotesque than most are used to.

    “While many may cringe at this, the eagles bring squirrels, rabbits, fish (and other animals) into the nest to eat multiple times each day,” they said in a statement. “To people, the cat represents a pet but to the eagles and to other raptors, the cat is a way to sustain the eaglets and help them to grow.”

    The Society is hoping that people will use this as a learning and teaching experience.

    The ground under an eagles nest is NOT a nice place to be. It's like a gut wagon and boneyard combined.

    I am not going to lie, i watch an eagle nest on the internet. It is always funny when something like this happens and people get freaked out. People become extremely attached to the birds, and frankly it is often times much more compelling than the reality shows on TV! Its fuckin nature man. Watching those little eggs hatch and those fuckers turn into full size eagles of the course of a couple months and fly away is cool as fuck.

    The nest i watch, half of it collapsed the other day. Luckily the 2 eaglets are already leaving the nest on a regular basis. But it is still their home base for feeding at this point.

    Robin, the beautiful Beth O rushed to Pittsburgh to save the poor defenseless kittens from bald eagles. I mean, what kind of eagle eats a kitten? That eagle must not have anything going on in its life, right Robin? Robin?

    I came close to killing an eagle while riding my bike. He was on the rode and picked up something dead. He took off right in front of me. He just cleared my windshield. I think if he hit me I'd have gone down. They are very big up close!
