No one is safe!

Unreal. Eagles are awesome scary.

Yikes! The child was curled up and the eagle miscalculated the weight. I bet he got clawed pretty bad. How awful!

That is unbelievable! I can't believe this isn't on all the news channels.

Eagles are like butterflies - majestic, beautiful from a distance, but gross and/or freaky up close. In the case of a butterfly, up close it's a disgusting bug with pretty wings.

On second thought this looks fake.

I think it might be fake.

I busted out laughing when they replayed the eagle's grab to the "Chariots of Fire" theme.

Not fake. Look at the foot position--perfect strike for a raptor.

As someone said earlier, it was just too heavy for the bird. Lucky it wasn't a Harpy eagle, or that kid would be dead.

It's a fake. I'm glad.

Yes, of course. It happened in Montreal so it can't be fake.

(This is so obviously fake I can't believe anyone was fooled. Gullible morons abound.)

Does anyone remember the "Lucky Gentoo" penguin in Alaska? He was being "herded" by three killer whales. The Gentoo is the fastest of the species and it was running for its life. Finally, the whales were closing in and the penguin had a hard decision to make.

saw that this morning. i laughed my ass off.

by Anonymousreply 2012/19/2012

Check out the video at r17's link where they use a close up.

It looks like the kid looks down right before the eagle picks him up and then you see his arm move up while he's in the air.

If this is a fake, then that's a pretty amazing doll.

by Anonymousreply 2112/19/2012

The guy who made it is on the radio right now. It was a school project. He goes to some video animation school

by Anonymousreply 2212/19/2012

Wow! That Eagle thought he was stronger than he was but if it had been a smaller child...

by Anonymousreply 2312/19/2012

The eagle would have taken it up and dropped it to kill it, right?

R21, who said it was a doll?

Have you heard of photoshop, CGI, etc? Are you really this out of touch with technology today? Are you 90?

That was one cocky little penguin and those were some pissed off whales.

Well that's convenient, R22! *cough* bullshit.

I remember when Helen Lawson was lifted 20 feet off the ground by an eagle when she was filming "Nanook of the North" in Alaska. Thank goodness she had the wherewithal to slug the damn bird, although it did make off with her $5000 custom-made wig.

As first posited above, the "Golden Eagle Snatched Kid" video was in fact the work of students at the Montreal-based animation and design school Centre NAD:

The "Golden Eagle Snatches Kid" video, uploaded to YouTube on the evening of December 18, was made by Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault and Félix Marquis-Poulin, students at Centre NAD, in the production simulation workshop class of the Bachelors degree in 3D Animation and Digital Design.

by Anonymousreply 3012/19/2012

r25 -

[quote]"A golden eagle tries to snatch a baby in Montreal," and the video goes viral. But it's faked. Golden Eagle is a scarce visitor in the Montreal area, but the bird in the video is not a Golden Eagle, nor anything else that occurs in the wild in North America. This was clearly a setup: using a falconer's bird, and probably a [bold]fake toddler[/bold] for the distant scene. With all the ignorance about nature that's out there already, the last thing we need is this kind of stupid garbage.

So fuck you. I'm not 90, I was responding to what I read (well, skimmed) at the link.

Golden eagles and other large birds have been known to dive bomb small deer and even one recorded case of an eagle causing a rocky mountain goat to lose it's footing and fall. Then they eat them.

But that isn't common. All eagles are notorious for stealing other birds catches. It's estimated ospreys lose half of all their catches (they eat almost exclusively fish) to bald eagles and other eagles.

On the flip side, eagles will commonly be harassed and mobbed by much smaller birds like crows.

by Anonymousreply 3512/19/2012

Not so much too heavy as perhaps did not get a good hook on the clothes. Skin and fur easier!

To the poster making out the eagle to be some ugly disgusting creature. Well, the eagle is doing what it has evolved to do over millions of years, and do most expertly and even elegantly.

Of course it would be a terrible tragedy if it had made off with the kid. However eagle make off with other prey to survive and feed their young. So you see, it is a perfectly natural act. Brutal on the prey, life-sustaining for the species.

It is horrible watching lions etc killing sweet little baby antelope etc, or worse hyenas eating them alive- but this is part of life in their world.

Incredible video. There was some discussion on CBC this AM that it may have been a fake. Did not look it too me.

It's fake.

by Anonymousreply 3712/19/2012

R32, in his defense, I'm sure most NRA members spell it that way.

This video -if it had been real- would be no where near as gruesome as that Koala who ate a kid's face off.

R35, you underestimate the abilities of golden eagles. They go after wolves, too.

An eagle grabbed up our neighbor's cat and dropped him about 50 yards away - cat had some very serious lacerations and a broken leg from the fall. Neighbor said she could not believe it was happening and just screamed hysterically. Luckily she saw the eagle drop the cat and ran to get him.

We rent a summer cabin on Hornby Island, BC, and there are a lot of eagles up there. I'm not sure one would grab a baby (although I was fooled by the video!) but obviously, a 12-lb cat was vulnerable prey.

charlie really is a hoot. R40 you're so right. He's always a few steps behind the pace, isn't he? But he's old and harmless and I've grown to like him. I like how he always thinks he's throwing down the gavel, giving all of the DL pearls of glorious wisdom, when really he's just making a minor fool of himself. Never change, charlie!

Eagles are the deadliest birds in the vulture family. They are known to snatch wolves, foxes and small dogs and deer. However, on the ground, they are extremely vulnerable to predators like the lynx.

Kid-snatching eagle hoax pays for a scholarship

The viral video of a Golden Eagle trying to nick off with a toddler has brought in enough money for its creators to fund a one-off scholarship.
