Golden Eagle Steals Kid From Park -- Yes, Really

By Sam Gibbs on at

Who'd have thought that the majestic Golden Eagle had a taste for blood, human blood. In fact, who'd have though any bird would actually be able to claim a human as food. Watch as this incredible bird genuinely tries to steal a kid right from a park in Montreal, and very, nearly, almost actually pulls it off. No more cute little birdy.

Of all the winged predators, the Golden Eagle is one of the most impressive, that's for sure. Having said that, it looks like even it couldn't quite manage the weight of the kid, but it was bloody close. Can you imagine if it really had completely made off with it? Blimey. [YouTube]

Thanks Lysann!

Update: Yep, it could be fake. But imagine if it wasn't....
