   A wedge-tailed eagle that was part of a birds of prey show at Alice Springs Desert Park flew at a young boy and latched on to his head with its talons instead of flying over to a perch as it had been trained to.
   The moment was captured by a visitor to the park, Christine O’Connell, who uploaded an image on to Instagram of the eagle seemingly attempting to drag away the boy, who was wearing a green hoodie.
   O’Connell wrote as the caption: “At a nature park in Alice Springs we decided to go to a bird show the young boy in the green kept pulling his zipper up and down.
