    Golden Eagle Snatches Child In A Park Hoax Seen By Millions

    Golden Eagle Snatches Child In A Park Hoax Seen By MillionsFriday, December 21, 2012 0:44

    (Before It's News)

    This video was seen by millions of people,it was later found out to be a very clever hoax.Not only did the video look real,there was a bit of acting done by the camera man as well,making it seem even more authentic as it fooled the public.The video shows A golden eagle in Canada swooping down and grabbing a child as it struggles to lift him up off the ground and drops him a few moments later.Then as it turns out the bird was not a golden eagle and not one to be found in Canada.
    According to Discovery.com [A Montreal 3-D animation school, Centre NAD, fessed up to the hoax.
    In a statement, the school proudly noted, “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....Both the eagle and the kid were created in 3D animation and integrated in to the film afterwards. The video has already received more than 1,200,000 views on YouTube and has been mentioned by dozens of media in Canada and abroad.”

    The Centre NAD also noted that this was not the first time that a video produced by their students had fooled the public: “Hoaxes produced in this class have already garnered attention, amongst others a video of a penguin having escaped the Montreal Biodôme.”]

    Saw it couple of days ago and knew it was a hoax. You can clearly tell it was from the Shadows.

    Yeah its probably fake. Even if the eagle would try to get the kid it probably wont be able to get it into the air as eagles arent that strong.

    It is fake, it was a university project. As for eagles not being strong. You don't give them enough credit they are more than capable of flying away with a small child

    Eagles can get turtles and small animals like rabbits but the kid in the video had a decent weight and he wasnt that young so I dont think an eagle could be able to get the kid to such heights.

    Incorrect. Unless your telling me a baby weighs more than a mountain goat?

    You could argue that it isn't truly flying but more gliding but even so, eagles are pretty impressive.

    Yeah man! It looked believable and didn't seem too far fetched lol. Thankfully it was a hoax though!

    In that video eagles just try to pull the goats down the mountain and then eat or they take them and descend with them. No way they could ascend with a mountain goat in their claws.

    It was freaking hilarious watching those goats falling from such heights
    I know its cruel but it was hilarious.

    You quoted me before my edit. But yeah, I did add in that it did look more like the eagle was gliding with it (from about 2:00 onwards) rather than actually taking off with it.

    But yeah, was a brutal way to hunt! Pretty clever, why work hard when gravity can do the work for you

    It was believable because eagles are able to pick up something thats about what 15 pounds or so?

    it was kinda funny watch it fall from that height....now that the word didnt end i can laugh at these things LOL

    Yeah I also thought that it was very smart, they have enough strength to pull a goat off a mountain so why not.

    Indeed If the fake eagle had flown away with the fake boy it would have looked complete and obvious bull$#@!.

    Birds (starlings I think) near where I used to live used a rock at the back of my garden to smash snail shells open so bird brained isn't always fair.
