You obviously haven't tried catching an angry sheep. :)

Wedge-tailed eagles do tend to only target very sick or dying animals though, 
or young lambs. An 
angry adult sheep is more than capable of knocking an adult human on their 
backside, if those 
home video shows on TV are anything to go by, but eagles generally aren't quite 
as stupid as the 
those people.
