An eagle almost snatches a kid.

Could this be fake?

Update: Apparently, it could.

Advisory: Bad word that a person might say when he sees an eagle trying to snatch a kid.

I didn't realize that that particular word was the same in English and French.

The slow motion scared the French out of me, though.

Fake, and impossible. It's a simple matter of weight ratios.

Beat me to it, random. Fine job.

They probably shouldn't dress the kid in that hat with the eyes again.

Judging by the laughably idiotic YouTube comments (yeah, redundant) arguing that it's fake, the video is almost certainly real. Staged (maybe, probably), but definitely real.

I figured it was fake but sent it in because they made the effort so what the heck, right?

What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen eagle?

If that were my kid being carried away, I wouldn't be standing there like a dunce, that would be one dead bird.

Saw it on the local news this morning and thought, what the heck, might as well. Slow news day, they opened with a story on a new road opening.

A golden eagle is a large bird. I know a guy in Utah who hunts with one. If I see him next week I'll ask him about it.

I'm with Mikey on this one. We would be having Golden Eagle Stew for supper.

Did that mean littl kid really try to grab that poor bird?

Definitely a fake.

The return of the Thunderbird.

Key comment on the gawker debunker page:

* Babies are a well known delicacy, being the tenderest and highest-fat-content human and also the least likely to fight back. Further, a google search for "baby snatching" returns over three million results. Clearly this is a well documented phenomenon.

I saw Candian design school open for Tom Jones.

Cud one of them iggles pick up Danny DeVito? Cuz ah lahk hims.

Well, golly gosh. Had me fooled.
