Golden Eagles hunting mountain goats

It's widespread in the Northern Hemisphere, bringing its bird of prey-like ferocity to North America, Europe and Asia.
The wingspan of this impressive bird can exceed 2 m. Can you imagine that?
I'd like to quote Wikipedia on the Golden Eagle's feeding habits:
"Sometimes when no carrion is available golden eagles will hunt down owls, hawks, falcons, coyotes, young to adult wolves, wolverines and even young cougars and bear cubs."
Mama mia! That's incredible!
You a'int seen nothing yet... how about a video of a Golden Eagle hunting mountain goats? Yeah, you want to see it.
It's hard to hold something against the Golden Eagle, though. The mate for life, which is a little animalistically romantic, and the female lays two black eggs. Does that make black omlettes?
