The girl was inconsolable after the sea eagle -- the largest eagle in Europe -- swooped, killed and ate her pet rabbit on the night of October 24th.
Suffering at the sight of his tearful daughter, the girl's father picked up the phone and reported the incident with the airborne predator to the police, newspaper Norrtelje Tidning reports.
The police however have decided not to launch a preliminary investigation as they were unable to find anything in the law books allowing for the indictment of large birds.
