Video: When Eagles Attack!

This video has really been making the rounds today, but in case anyone has missed it, it is a  must see. It was shot in a park in Quebec and features a large golden eagle swooping down and actually picking up a small child. The first part of the video is at regular speed, so it's hard to see what's happening, particularly when the cameraman starts to panic. But wait for the second half of the video when it drops into slow-motion to really see what was going on. Crazy!

Edit: Okay, so I've been had. This video is a fake. I knew it had to be too good to be true. Still a fun video. And kudos to those who made it for pulling this off.

It's fake. Wired has an article debunking it.

Check out this CBC News story. It was a project for Digital Animation students.

Eh... I should have known. My instincts were telling me it wasn't real, but I was seeing it posted all over the place today, and thought it was real after all.

I'll change the post to reflect this.
