Yes, I believe it's real. I've seen hawks pick squirrels off tree limbs before so that bunny was easy pickings.

This video reminds me of an incident that happened at work several years ago. I worked day shift at an indoor facility and the night shift would leave the building doors open. With metal halide high bay lighting, bugs would fly in and it would create a smorgasbord of food for birds, spiders, bats and larger insects that eat the smaller ones. As my shift started, a friend of mine spotted a large preying mantis on the floor and so in an effort to keep it from being crushed, he took it over to the door and tossed it up in the air so it could resume it place in nature. It flew about 50 feet and a mocking bird swooped down and picked it off. The look on my friend's face was priceless....lol In spite of our best intentions, nature always trumps. That's the way it was designed to work.

Oh my gosh, how sad, yes it is real. I remember seeing a video years ago of a little boy with a new hampster. He had it outside and took it out of its cage to show it off and set it on top, and in one second a hawk flew by and grabbed it and flew off. The thing with hawks and owls and such is they make no noise when flying. They roost in some tree or on a telephone pole or something and just swoop down.

Let me add this too, it was sad for the young child to see that. "No good deed goes undone."

I would agree that it's sad for the child to see that, but it's also accurate.
