Fox Hunting With a Golden Eagle

In this video you see a Kazakh hunter using an eagle he has just trained to hunt a fox in the Altai Mountains of Mongolia. The video is a small part of a series called Human Planet, which currently airs on Discovery and the BBC. The series documents people all over the world living in extraordinary conditions. While the focus is mostly a sociological one, it contains some good information about the way non-industrial cultures live.

I hope that they use all the footage they have to make a more extensive series. Each one of the cultures they visit, deserves at least a whole episode.
