Watch The Video of Octopus Try to Kill an Bald Eagle:
One of the farmers John Ilett told to CNN, they saw "a full-sized eagle submerged in the water with a big giant octopus in the water trying to drag it down." He also mentioned that they were sceptical if they should intervene but the sight was heart-breaking. He said, "But it was heart wrenching to see this octopus was trying to drown this eagle." He then used a pole and tried to break their scuffle. Thankfully, the octopus loosened its grip and the bird was able to get back to the shore in that time. The bird reached the shore and flew away after 10 minutes. It was indeed a close call between a prey and a predator here.
