A brave Prairie Dog targeted by a Hawk three times its size was in no mood to roll over for easy pickings.

The dramatic duel between the Prairie dog and hawk was caught on camera by David McMillan, a wealth Manager based in Boulder, Colorado, USA.

David said: “It’s sad to see, in a way, but it really is an amazing capture if I say so myself.”

“What’s even more heart-breaking is that after the Prairie Dog managed to escape the hawk‘s attack, an eagle snatched up the wounded fella just seconds later.”
