I thought this was a good way to look at this by "The Anomalist" :
OK, the Baby-Snatching Eagle Video Is Officially a (Really Big) Fake Yahoo News
We aren't surprised. We are impressed by the skill level of the fakery though, and would like to see the hoaxers top themselves. Maybe next time have
a golden eagle pick up a baby and then have a pterodactyl swoop in and pick up the eagle still holding the baby?
Seen this earlier in the morning at random, it looks pretty real even though everybody saying its fake and eagles can get pretty big, if you seen one
up close and personal there actually pretty big birds when they spreed there wings, I am not that small of a guy around 6 feet and 235 pounds but on
some of them there wingspan is easily my height.
But even if it happened the eagle could not carry the child far, it would eventually drop the child its all just a matter how high and far it got
before it dropped him. And there opportunists, they will lay in wait for there target for long periods of time, in the wild they will even snatch
other predators kills like a bear who is fishing by the river, it will wait till the bear caught the fish then fly right up to it and snatch it out
of its claws if it can. They will even trip or pull bigger animals into ravines to kill them if the opportunity is there. It's not likely to happen,
but if you have a small child or a baby laying around and your area with these big birds and your not paying attention, then maybe you should pay
Some random vids of eagles, and some of trained hunting eagles going after coyotes, wolfs, and even some kid on a cliff in Mongolia.

Yes, Subway could use this as a counter add agaist McDonald's. And even though a hoax. Its possible this could happen "somewhere" as stated in an
above post. It might save a life and bring awareness to parents that "watch your kids or they might get snatched!" if it saves even one kid (or pet)
