According to legend, there have been at least two attempts to secure the treasure: in the 17th Century a group of heavily armed men tried to destroy the aquiline gardens, but were driven off; in the 18th Century a similar attempt was made by a group of veteran soldiers, but they were no more successful than the first group.
The implication is these eagles were of an unknown kind. Certainly, they seem to have had extremely long lifespans. They were probably conceived as paranormal.
