Tiny holes in the bones indicate that they passed through a large bird’s digestive system, according to Professor Pawel Valde-Nowak of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. It’s not clear, however, whether the bird attacked and ate the young Neanderthal or scavenged the remains of a dead child.
What kind of birds were around then that could eat a child? That would be pretty terrifying to have to watch out for giant bird attacks.

A new study suggests that prehistoric birds of prey made meals out of some of our earliest human ancestors. Researchers drew this conclusion after studying more than 600 bones from modern-day monkeys. They had collected the bones from beneath the nests of African crowned eagles in the Ivory Coast's Tai rainforest. A full-grown African crowned eagle is roughly the size of an American bald eagle, which typically weighs about 10 to 12 pounds.

I saw a bald eagle flying with a live cat it its claws. (I kick myself to this day for not getting that viral video)
What these big birds to is pick up prey, fly high and then drop them to their death.
Birds are freaking scary.
