What an amazing and interesting shot. It's great to see inside a dwelling.
I wonder why the eagle doesn't eat the cat. It's quite a small cat, or are the eagles just trained to eat fish?. Smile I just would never have imagined these people would have cats as pets. Amazing.

Hi Chris, thanks for your UA and interest. But to answer your question yes golden eagles are trained to hunt foxes and smallish mammals they would certainly make light work of a cat. But if you notice in the image Ardak is in the middle of both cat and eagle. So effectively the eagle can't see the cat. Also the Eagle is lashed to the wooden block by a series of leather straps, so can't move from there. Hope that helps.
Simon.
