The youngster, said to be between six and eight, had been fiddling with the zipper of his jacket when the bird tried to pick him up “like a small animal”

“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.

“A thorough investigation regarding the circumstances behind this incident is under way and the eagle will be removed from the show while this investigation is ongoing.”
