      talons of Redtail wrapped around your arm. Many years ago a GHO had me by the arm for only a few minutes and I can still vividly remember how much that hurt. Two miles.......wow!

        I think she was weak from hunger since she could have been there for a few days. A broken something in her shoulder or wing and a little blood in one eye..she could have had brain problems as well....is why I didn't follow up and ask.

        But she was huge, I'm tall, and with her on my forearm, her head was at eye height, fortunately hers was covered.
