That has to be fake! I grew up in Montreal and I've never seen any eagle on Mont Royal in 33 years. There's peregrine falcons downtown but eagles?
Why does that headline looks vaguely familiar? What may be inside of us, almost at a genetic level, that remembers such incidents?I’m not talking about the Lawndale, Illinois, case of Marlon Lowe being picked up by one of two large birds, then dropped. That took place in Logan County in April of 1977.
Instead, I’m reminded of my sense that there is a new such event due, by reading about an earlier case, highlighted recently by anomalist Scott Maruna. Maruna posted his finding of a copy of an old article about a bird identified as an eagle picking up a boy in 1929 Kentucky.
Maruna compared it to the Lawndale abduction attempt of Marlon Lowe, which I detailed in Mysterious America. Maruna’s reasons were to talk about the legacy of the ridicule of such encounters. But I want to point out something else: The context and the new surprise that such events do occur.
Video " Golden Eagle Snatches Kid "posted on YouTube on December 18 evening, was produced by Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault, Rye and Félix Antoine Marquis-Poulin, student at the NAD Centre in the course" Simulation Workshop production "Bachelor of 3D animation and digital design.
The video shows an eagle clutching a young child playing under the supervision of his father before releasing a few meters away. The child and the eagle were created in 3D animation by students and then integrated into a real shooting.
Since its online video has received over 1.2 million views on YouTube in addition to being picked up by dozens of media outlets across Canada, the United States and Europe.
The course "Simulation Workshop production," offered the fifth quarter, aimed at creative projects according to the criteria of quality and production industry practice while developing the ability to work as a team. Hoaxes produced in this course have already been talking about them on the Internet, including video of a penguin escaped the Biodome .

Good find, been scouring the net for a few hours trying to find the answer.
I still think that the "hoax" video with the child continuing up is a result of post processing, everything I have done to the original video shows the child drop the instant he is released. However, when the bird first grabs the child and goes to take off, that does look a little off.
