Dude, did you even bother to read the posts above yours?


Wasn't correcting you. Just adding what I know about what eagles can take. I was just voicing up to the post. I never said they flew with the kills.

I kinda doubt it,

Our 3 year old lil girl weighs 36 pounds, and we have a hard time carrying her up our 3 flights of stairs half the time with grocerys and such when she falls asleep, I doubt that with that weight that bird would be able to remain in flight,

Let alone Climb high enuff to reach his nest. They hunt rodents/ lizzards/ small game, not a toddler ( I know not to eat) but also what about the nest? big enuff for a toddler?


Very interesting indeed, but not very plasuiable

plus, 3 year olds are slippery when disturbed.

Like humans, I'm sure not all eagles are created equal. I don't see how an above-average sized eagle couldn't carry off a small child. The fact that she wasn't hurt is the extraordinary part.

I have to agree with my good friend, Kruel. Truth is stranger than fiction and there have been a gaggle of stories throughout history of oversized, agressive birds-of- prey that are very determined and territorial. Personally, i'm afraid of all birds and if a finch attacked my hair I woiuld probably faint to the ground and it would peck slowly at my jugular vein until I bled to death and then it would eat me. Finches make suicide dive attacks and run a tight ship. Be afraid.

This was a hoax


Students confessed to creating the video as part of a simulation workshop class at the Centre NAD in Montreal, Canada. They used 3D animation to create the depiction of an eagle swooping down and momentarily struggling to carry off the child in its talons, so that they could overlay the 3D elements on top of real video footage of a park.

Centre NAD released a statement revealing the hoax on Dec. 19, about a day after the video went up on YouTube. The video has since gone viral with more than 5 million views on YouTube.

One bird expert had told sister website Livescience that the video looked like an "elaborate hoax" because of the eagle's unnatural behavior, appearance and sound.

Yes, that video was a hoax. The story in the OP however, is not a hoax.

Not exactly a hoax, check this out :
eagle lifts deer

there are plenty of others . . .
youtube

I had a personal incident where as I was walking my dog on a leash yet
a Great horned owl flew down and tried to take off with him.
Good thing the dog was on a leash !

I recently watched a video where an eagle takes down a baby deer, so maybe this is possible. Reminds of that fake video of the falcon stealing the baby.
