Attacking the victim rapidly roll, predator grabs her neck or back of the neck and the victim is often ranges from tens of meters of riding a her enemy before they throw it, or fall, bleeding blood. If we trace the evolution of body size from large predators to smaller, easy to see that their body weight decreased more rapidly than the strength of the animal (weasels, for example, is able to drag the victim, twice the himself by weight). Usual prey of small mustelids are rodents, but they are able to acquire larger animals. These active and not on the growth of aggressive hunters during the depression of small rodents often mined grouse, and it is quite possible that the bird is in excess of the weight she attacked the enemy, raise it in the air and moves a certain distance.
