SAN JUAN ISLANDS, WASHINGTON (FOX NEWS) – Videos and photos captured a bald eagle attempting to snatch a rabbit from a young red fox as they battled it out 20 feet in the air in what a photographer called a “dramatic act of thievery.”

The dramatic sight at San Juan Island National Historic Park, in Washington state, was caught by photographers Kevin Ebi, of LivingWilderness.com, and Zachary Hartje.

Ebi wrote in a blogpost on Monday he was at the park a few days ago watching the young red foxes, called kits, hunt just before sunset.

One of the kits caught a rabbit and held it in its mouth.

“I panned my camera with it to capture the action. Then behind me, I heard the cry of a bald eagle. I turned around and saw it approaching fast,” Ebi said.
