Description

A bird looking like a large vulture is soaring with a man trapped in its claws as a group of people and a dismayed hatchling watch them fly away from the seashore.
The caption reads in the German edition: … Packte in eine seiner Klauen unsern Kapitän, flog eine Meile weit mit ihm in die Höhe.
