Welp, this is terrifying and clearly proves the world is ending.

Last week, during a show at Alice Springs Desert Park in Australia’s Northern Territory, a gigantic eagle tried to steal a small child at a bird show, as reported by The Guardian.

Christine O’Donnell, also in attendance for show, took the photos and discussed the incident on Instagram.

Not the sharpest photo but lucky just to snap it.

At a nature park in Alice Springs we decided to go to a bird show the young boy in the green kept pulling his zipper up and down.

For some reason the Wedge Tailed Eagle did not like it and instead of flying over to the log he is meant to for a photo opportunity he flew straight at the young boy and attacked him.

The show was quickly cancelled and the boy taken off to first aid.

Those talons are huge he was a very lucky young boy.
