Golden Eagle Snatches Kid

December 21, 2012

Did it fool you? It looked so real I got scared myself. But... turns out it's a HOAX.

A viral video showing a golden eagle attempting to carry off a young child has been revealed as a hoax by its creators.
Students confessed to creating the video as part of a simulation workshop class at the Centre NAD in Montreal, Canada. They used 3D animation to create the depiction of an eagle swooping down and momentarily struggling to carry off the child in its talons, so that they could overlay the 3D elements on top of real video footage of a park.
Centre NAD released a statement revealing the hoax on Dec. 19, about a day after the video went up on YouTube. The video has since gone viral with more than 5 million views on YouTube.
