A sunny day in the park with your family, what a pleasant image, but not so much when it also includes an oversize eagle snatching on your kid!! That was what happened at a Canadian park when a toddler sitting on the grass was snatched from the ground by a golden eagle, the largest prey bird in North America. Watch the video that capture the whole thing! but is this video fake or is it real? we know the truth!!
The video that capture this terrifying moment was uploaded on YouTube yesterday and it already has over 2 million views.
Not surprising to hear that an eagle snatched a baby right in front of his parents is shocking already, even more to see the exact moment it happened.
It all happened at the Mount Royal Park in Montreal where a man begins his video by catching the moment a golden eagle flies over the blue sky, he is moving in circles, then comes a quick descent coming close to a baby wearing an oversize jacket sitting on the grass, the eagle grabs the baby by his jacket then he let him go. The baby’s father runs to comforts his baby, visibly scared but unharmed!.
The golden eagle are the largest, deadliest predators in North America, their diets includes mice, rabbits, marmots, foxes, and young goats and sheep, they hunt by flying slowly watching for a prey to kill, once they spot their pray they use the element of surprise. Their broad wings reach up to 102 cm (40 inches) in length, they can weight over 15 lbs.
FAKE OR REAL????
Some critics said the video is a fake, but what do you think? Hmm… well is sure is a fake video, it was unloaded by Centre NAD, well actually by some of their students Loïc Mireault Normand Archambault, and Félix Marquis-Poulin who were working in the production simulation workshop class of the Bachelors degree in 3D Animation and Digital Design.
