Thanks everyone for your posts on a fascinating topic.
For interest sake,
I notice a lovely article recently published by Esteban Fuentes and Jerry Olsen on macropod predation by Wedge-tailed eagles..
Also of interest, the CSIRO's 'EMU' publication (Volume 27, No. 4, 1928, pp. 287-289) describes two Wedge-tailed eagle attacks on children in Western Australia. Evidently the author 'F.L. Whitlock' and editors of EMU thought the described events were noteworthy and merited further discussion at the time.
Does anyone else have any eyewitness accounts or literature on this topic?
Kind regards, Roy.

Following recent recent contributions about possible wedge tail eagle attacks on small children let me relate an account I heard about 10 years from a very reliable senior citizen in Braidwood who was married at the time to a journalist in charge of the local newspaper.
