@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 :)

A Golden Eagle could conceivably carry off a new born infant. But such was not the case here, this was a student film project. Well done though, it really did seem real.

I don't. Know. The hawks in a country park always circle in to see if they can take my pittle dog.
They havn't had a go yet. But they really really want to. Fcukers.

I wish someone would've told me this was fake BEFORE I killed all those eagles.

Very well made. I read about this being a fake before I saw this video though.

I'm gonna say real.
It dropped the kid 'cause he was too heavy. Must've mistaken Elmo hat for a smaller critter.

Eagles snatch up lambs which are about the size of that baby.

'The “Golden Eagle Snatches Kid” video, uploaded to YouTube on the evening of December 18, was made by Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault and Félix Marquis-Poulin, students at Centre NAD, in the production simulation workshop class of the Bachelors degree in 3D Animation and Digital Design.'

This was reported in The Daily Mail UK. Obviously fake. FYI- this is the same place CrakrJak gets his stats supporting his gun laws stance. Just sayin.

Fake. For a number of reasons.

The bird just doesn't fly right for a start.
Goldies tend to take down their prey and mantle on it, rather than lifting it.
If it did lift something that heavy then it would have to put a lot of deep downbeats to get it off the ground, rather than the shallow flicks ~ lazy cgi.
A goldie goes to kill when it goes for small mammals ~ the talons would have messed that kids head up real good.
Goldies tend to avoid humans ~ especially populated areas.

They should be illegal because they can hurt children.

I so wanted this to be real but unless we have two suns this is fake. When the eagle is coming in all the shadows including his point to the left. But the shadows of the mom and all the rest of the people in the action point to the right. The Eagles shadow switches also.
