Eagle snatches a kid Posted on Wednesday, December 19th, 2012 at 6:11 am. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple Damn. Torvos How to tell this happened in Canada – the videographer went to check to see if the child was ok Player_16 Yeah, saw this on the news. With all the people around n such, the eagle went for it. Wonder what was the attraction to cause that? Petro It was hungry? Sasparilla2 And the target looked small enough and is not very mobile (looked like the Eagle could have made it off with the kid you can see he/she was gaining altitude in the slow mow – the baby and his family were very, very lucky). Amazing how fast the Eagle came in looked and then went for the grab. Ben It’s a fake. As usual. Canucker It’s fake. No snow. No ice. No blizzard. It’s supposed to be Montreal! Plus a Canadian bird would have gone for the mother. Lorenzo Orlandi OH SHI… http://www.yourmaclifeshow.com/ Shawn King Just a little bit fake – http://wtvr.com/2012/12/19/viral-fake-out-golden-eagle-snatches-kid-is-cgi/ http://www.sk1wbw.wordpress.com/ Wayne Williams That’s not a bird… it’s a space station with wings. itsjared This is real though… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VklTs-Tid_I&feature=youtu.be&t=6m34s Boo it may be fake but Golden Eagle is more than capable of killing a toddler. They’ve been known to take down small deer. http://twitter.com/OssoBuco Ralph Kruse Confirmed to be baloney: http://blogue.centrenad.com/2012/12/19/centre-nad-reassures-montrealers-no-danger-of-being-snatched-by-a-royal-eagle/?lang=en Dawes For some reason I thought it would be Don Henley. Mick What? No Eagles fans??? http://sharonsharalike.com/ Sharon Sharalike The lifting power of an eagle is a maximum of about 3 pounds. And all that aerodynamic lift stuff is non-linear, so getting a toddler off the ground is out of the question for even a freakishly large and strong eagle. http://www.facebook.com/mattlqx Matt Kulka No update noting its fake for the 99% of people that don’t click through to the comments?
