Chalk up something else parents have to beware of – baby snatching eagles!
According to YouTube user MrNuclearCat, the video above shows a golden eagle grabbing a baby in Montreal.
The bird then dives towards a family, grabbing a toddler while his mother looks on in horror. The eagle struggles to lift the child and drops him a few feet off the ground.
As the eagle grabs the child, the French-speaking man filming the clip swears in English and runs over to help the family. The video then zooms in on the child who begins crying but does not appear to be seriously hurt.
Commentors have been questioning the authenticity of the video, claiming it has to be a fake, but I do know. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
