PITTSBURGH–  Bald Eagles in Western Pennsylvania are causing an internet meltdown.  The Audubon Society’s webcam captured the adult eagles bringing a cat to the nest on Tuesday.

The 6-week-old hatchlings were only to happy to take part in the meal with everyone on the webcam watching.

According to a Facebook post by the Western Pennsylvania Audubon Society, they believe the cat was already deceased. In the statement they said, “While seeing a cat in the nest was difficult for many, we’re hopeful that people will understand that this is a part of nature, and nature isn’t always kind or pretty.”

Earlier this year the Hanover Bald Eagles nest had their own bad news, with an eaglet passing away just days after birth, and a second egg failing to hatch.

The Western Pennsylvania nest also had one egg that failed to hatch, but it was the third egg for their nest.
