I used to worry about the eagles, especially when we had sick calves out there, but I've never had any problems yet. There's quite often 8 or 10 of them hanging out in the calving pen. It appears all they want is afterbirth.
Now ravens and magpies are another story, as they will not hesitate to pick apart a calf that is down but not dead.

In the 50's the Calif. Cattlemen Assoc. here paid 10 cent for Black Billed Maggpies - Helped pay for 22 shells - I shot 23 straight in the head and left the beak hanging...
