Manchu people find hunting partner in eagles | 2016-12-20 11:40

The eagle has long been a totem for Manchu people, the largest ethnic minority in China. Ancestors of the Manchu people, born in China's cold northern areas and raised as hunters, trained eagles as their hunting partners. Eagles, known for their astute instincts and aviation abilities, can be a powerful helping hand for hunters.
