Bad News: The Golden Eagle Kid-Snatching Video Is Probably Fake

The video of the golden eagle snatching up a little boy in a park is probably fake. One red flag: the video is the Youtube user’s only upload.

The CGI is messed up too…”its wings disappear at one point, its shadow is inconsistent, and when it drops its cargo the baby somehow manages to float upward for a second.” Not a single media source around the area where it was filmed picked it up.

Experts say it’s “garbage.” The golden eagle is scarce in Montreal where the video was filmed plus the bird in the video isn’t a golden eagle at all. They say it’s clearly a setup: using a falconer’s bird and probably a fake toddler. You be the judge.
