• Short Summary

    Men invade an eagle's nest and steal an eaglet in Switzerland.

  • Description

    Titles read: "STORMING THE EAGLE'S HOME".

    Vorarlberg, Switzerland.

    Various shots of men walking up mountains in hiking gear on their way to the nesting place of the eagles. Commentator says the eagles here have become a menace to the treasured herds of chamois and deer. The men look through binoculars and one man lowers himself down towards the nest, accompanied by a cameraman with a small movie camera.

    Good shots of a mother eagle and eaglet (chick) in the nest. The mother spreads her wings and starts to get angry. A man takes the chick back up to the top of the cliff, "destined for a zoo". M/Ss of the men posing with the eaglet - it looks pretty angry and I'm not surprised!
