I don't know why people say it's fake. It looks pretty real to me. When the guy filming sees the bird grab the kid he automatically puts the camera away and starts running to help. looks scary.

I have seen plenty of Eagles in the wild (both parents are Birders as well as live in New Hampshire on the water). I have never seen one with a wing span like the one in this video. It has to have easily a 8 to 10 ft wingspan. Watching the video posted above in this thread it does look a bit fishy.. The kid does seem like a doll at times. I am pretty sure he moves just the slightest right before the bird grabs him. I also do not think the bird could be trained to do that nor is it computer animation. It looks real. The Eagle to be real most likely mistook the kid for a rabbit or something similar and only after grabbing it did it realize it was prey he had never seen before.edit on 19-12-2012 by GArnold because: (no reason given)
