Son and I saw one while fishing a few years ago. Maybe 200 feet away when it came out of a tree and took a Canadian gosling! Awesome sight.

Not for the gosling

If I remember right, the Golden Eagle will hunt mountain goats. It will swoop down on the goats and grab them, carry them off the trail they are on, and drop them to kill them. They will then feast on the dead or wounded carcass. There have been reports of Golden Eagles knocking hikers off trails, hunting them like they do mountain goats. The adult eagles are a very large bird with a very large wingspan.

I think the bandidos might also, 

but the hells angels probably use condors, 

and the outlaws who the **** knows, 

I have no idea about the pagans and the vagos either, 

but the Cossack group being near water might use seagulls.

I don’t think he meant  “ Biker Mongols”.

We had both Golden and Bald Eagles up north. The Golden was about twice as big.

the Golden Eagles I have seen up close are huge, but it may be a regional thing.

Yep I am guessing that the Golden out weighs the Baldy by twice. 
It was always fun to watch the different birds. The swallows would mess with the Crows, the Crows would mess with the Hawks and sometimes the Bald Eagles. The Hawks would mess with the Bald Eagles. But the Bald Eagles were the only ones I ever saw mess with the Golden Eagles.
