@cracker bull. Id be stunned if a baldie can lift more than 4kg. Any eagle locked into an 8kg sockeye better be able to swim...

Phillipine has probably the best lifting capacity of any eagle. Most of its diet are flying lemurs. They do tackle monkeys but its a high risk affair, and again, they kill, and mantle, not snatch.

MattPrince: I've seen Bald Eagles carry off 20lb+ fish right out of the river. A 1-2 month old baby wouldn`t be impossible. Rabbits, Cats, Small Dogs, Snakes and such aren`t safe from Eagles. Philippine Eagles kill and carry off monkeys.

So it is possible, although not probable.

A golden eagle wouldn't carry off a new born infant and they don`t carry lambs off either. Its just not their modus operandi. They bring *down* small antelopes and young deer, they don`t carry them off.

Goldies average not much heavier than a human new-born ~ about 5.5~11 lb. There is some absolute rubbish about how much a golden eagle can carry ~ probably put about by boastful falconers - I had one tell me his gyrfalcon was faster than a `grin in a stoop the other day..

A newborn human might just be liftable ~ but not a toddler, and not like this.

Gerry1of1 you should know better, taken in by a pair of French Students :)
