It was a pretty good video, but as Rafterman already posted; it is confirmed a hoax and fake video.


Quote

MONTREAL - Relax, world — your baby won't get snatched by an eagle if you visit Montreal.

An online video of the massive bird plucking an infant off the ground was acknowledged by its creators as a fake Wednesday.

The admission came as the video was viewed millions of times on YouTube in the span of several hours and was the subject of news reports by dozens of media around the globe.

It was actually produced by students as a class project at a new-media training institute in Montreal.

Their assignment: create a viral video and a hoax.

"The New Richard Nixon"...the video IS fake. The people who made it even came forward and confessed it was all faked.

Luckily it's fake.  That would suck to have your child's destiny end up being eagle poop.

Have they got bored of porting and planking?
I hope it isn't anything more than two videos mixed together.
The implications are too much to bear if they have enticed a kid.
Art experiment or not.
However if they used an "eagle" it would be harder to organise.
