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?


Don't think it's fake but I think it was a buzzard. I see them a lot when I go to the Mount Royal park.
And buzzard are know to attack people and animals quite often. As a matter of fact, this lady I know got her
poodle snatched, kidnapped and killed by a buzzard this summer in Montreal.



I might wrong as I'm not a bird expert.


Edit: Just asked a friend who knows about birds, and he thinks it's definitely an eagle, I guess I was wrong.

Gawker is screaming fake ... lol

All The Reasons That Baby-Snatching Eagle Video Is Fake

They have some screenshots debunking the video, anyone care to verify their findings?

Now the fatness of American kids makes more sense. Good anti-raptor strategy.

Canada better start pushing the carbs.

But what about the dingos... the dingos.

Yeah, I think that pretty much proves it.

Plus if you notice the eagle's speed when it gets closer to the ground, it seems to accelerate too fast - looks unnatural. Almost like it juts forward in flight, while not even flapping its wings.

Well after reading various other sites and having friends from the area say their news is calling it CGI well I don't know about this video now.


There are a few links that say the baby is a doll and there are no shadows to back up the eagle holding the baby.



This is why I despise people who use CGI! It is absolutely insane that we have to question videos now because someone gets their jollies off fooling people just so they can make it to the news.

Without the stabilisation that the "It's fake!" video maker put in, it looks more like it was just momentum, or the claw caught on the babies jacket.

So it was, sorry, but yeah, in that video, you can see the momentum carry the kid forward then just drop.

In fact, I'm wondering if the stabilisation has added the extra frames that make the kid look like he is still going up, I'm not sure how it works, but again, after seeing the weird motion from applying it to gigs I have filmed, I am more and more convinced that the hoax video is in fact the hoax.

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.


It does happen. Check this out for more. > Bird Picks Up Boy www.cryptomundo.com...

ive just watched it
i cant come to any conclusions from that video it jumps from frame to frame
very hard to say

maryhinge you mentioned momentum
but there isnt any generated
as the bird flys diagonally up, its not throwing the baby skyward
once its talons are open there would of only been freefall
and to the talon caught in clothing, there is no clothing in that 8inch (guesstimate) gap between the talons and babys clothing

That's my point, it jumps from frame to frame, I used the original video source frames.

The hoax claim video seems to have had frames added, possibly as a result of the image stabilisation, (again, not 100% sure how that works).

Even if the original video was a hoax, the hoax claim video should be dismissed in my opinion as it has obviously had post production work and effects done to it.

Good lord that is one lucky child-Thank goodness he was wrapped up in winter clothes,or those talons would have caused serious injuries to the poor little mite.

We sometimes get small dogs attacked by hawks in the UK,which can be fatal.
That kid was so lucky but I wonder if he will remember it-I am guessing he will,as you often remember thinks which scared you as a young child in my experience at least.

I bet the kids dad will dream about it as well.
Must have been terrifying for him too.


Edit-Hmmm so is it a fake then?I just caught up on the last page of the thread...
I didn't spot it,I shall have to watch it again.

Well, I have just gone through it again with the video editing software I use (Cyberlink PowerDirector 10), adding image stabilisation does seem to add frames, or at least the video seems smoother, and I noticed that the point where the kid seems to carry on going up, there is still one of the birds legs attached to him.

I am merely an amateur in video editing, but I am now convinced this video is not a hoax, or at least not based on the evidence of the heavily altered "it's a hoax" video.

Hopefully someone with more editing experience will give it a look.

My friend in the area said it IS fake and was done by a 3D class who just admitted to it being fake because people were freaking out.

Here is the link:

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 .


The original link is in French. I used Google Translate

Bird Catches Baby Hoax

Ok now can this be moved to hoax?

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.

I thank my friend Marianne for the information. I would have still been on the fence! I know nothing of CGI.

Yea I shared a link on FB from another news site and a friend of mine who lives in the area commented and shared the link I provided. She said people were getting freaked out so they came forward. I guess it was a current 3D class, hope they got A's!

Wow, I'm surprised the Eagle didn't make off with the kid. Golden Eagles kill wolves, that kid has got to be less than ten pounds. Sorry if this sounds inconsiderate but the family is extremely lucky.
