Mating season is often a dangerous time for the species involved, and few better examples exist than this popular video. At first, what appears to be two woodland grouse males engage in a fight, but are quickly broken up by a Golden Eagle that takes down one of the game birds.

Right around the :40 mark the grouse is probably regretting not leaving when he had the chance.
