Infant mortality rates were high until the end of the 19th Century. Today there's something like 4 million infants who die each year and that's only a stat for places which keep records. Imagine how many infants and young children were dying when this happened?

I reckon those psycho-looking shoebill storks could easily eat an infant. The Great White Pelican was around Eastern Europe back then and it's a big old bird even today.

Yep. Very possible, also eagle such as Stellars, Bald, and Golden are more than capable of killing a child.

During the time period, there were even larger eagles around.

New Zealand played host to this bad boy.

Yeah, Neanderthal could hold his own, but there were lots of alpha preds out there who didn't mind chomping on 'em, either.

There were videos on YouTube of eagles killing deer,don`t know if they`re still on there.A Golden Eagle is easily capable of killing a small person,just check out their talons and it`s easy to see why.

I think I remember, from my archeological studies, that at some point in European pre- history, bodies were left out in the open, after death, for carrion (Usually large black coloured birds, crows, ravens, etc) to de-flesh them.
The sight of one of these birds, disturbed mid munch, flying away, maybe the origins of witches flying.

Yep ... They did find some Terror Bird bones in a river in Florida that due to their mineral content it was estimated the bird died only 10,000 years ago. It was not that long ago that people only thought the Terror Birds only lived in South America...new digs and new bones have proved otherwise.

Like others have said there were plenty of birds of prey capable of carrying off and eating an infant ... That would have been a bad day for everyone except the bird..

We were on a very busy road and never got to see the outcome. It flew just a few feet away from our windshield.
