Astonishing footage :o

                     The 2016 Rugby Union Six Nations - the safer and                                                    more reliable alternative to sleeping pills.

 

                  (Hull FC are somewhere near top of the Super league, btw..)

It's fake, apparently these types of birds are very scared of humans so would not swoop down with people around.

Hmmm most definitely fake.
1 urban parkland is not typical Golden Eagle teritory ( OK it could have been an escapee)
2 more importantly the kids shoulders would have been ripped to shreds by the talons
3 has anybody dropped a toddler from that height ( I hope not)

Yes if it was real that kid probably would not be sitting on the grass, only being just a little bit upset

Was anyone else expecting to see footage of an obese child that couldn't fit in their allocated seat on a plane? :lol:

I thought it might get more interest worded like it was!

In hindsight and the cold light of day, it certainly is an unlikely scenario but an impressive fake nonetheless.

I shall turn my scepticism control up a notch or two in future.

Myth busted: It was a visual effects project.
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.
The video shows a royal eagle snatching a young kid while he plays under the watch of his dad. The eagle then drops the kid a few feet away. Both the eagle and the kid were created in 3D animation and integrated in to the film afterwards.

good effort though.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.
