China's last eagle hunting tribe - Jilin

China's last eagle hunting tribe - Jilin

Hunters display their eagles during the festival. The relationship of the bird and its master is constant and all-consuming. In the training of a young eagle, the berkutchy must sacrifice his sleep for a long period. -- Hunting with golden eagles is a traditional art of the Eurasian steppes, particularly in Central Asia. The second eagle hunting culture festival opening brought 40 eagle hunters to display their birds. Jilin Province. 9th January 2012
