Eagle Tries to Snatch Kid from Montreal Park (Video)
So, everybody’s talking this morning about this insane video that was supposedly shot at a park in Montreal. What’s so special about it? Oh, not much. It just shows a huge eagle trying to snatch a human baby.
Nope, not kidding. We’re not sure when this is supposed to have taken place; however, the video was just uploaded yesterday.
As you’ll see, the eagle actually succeeds in picking the kid up off the ground. Then it carries him a few feet before it realizes, “nope, not going to work,” and drops him.
You ready to see it? Well, here you go:
Some of you may be wondering at this point, is this really a sports story? And to that I say, of course it’s a sports story! The eagle is hunting, isn’t it?
Anyway, I obviously don’t need to tell you that there are a lot of skeptics out there who don’t believe this is real. Some theories say it’s CGI, identifying the shadows on the ground, or the way the kid is lifted off the ground as possible evidence.
However, in my opinion, the best theory holds that this is a real eagle, but that the kid is fake.
But you say, “that’s a real kid crying!” And to that I say, yes it is. But notice two things: (a) there is a stroller over by the kid facing away from the camera, and (b) the camera is pointed at the ground while the guy runs over to the kid. So I say a trained eagle picked up a fake kid and droped it. Then, while the camera was pointed down, the lady switched the fake kid with the real one in the stroller.
Presto: international viral video sensation!
But that’s just my opinion. Again, I didn’t come up with this theory myself. What do you think?
