The Internet was flipping out yesterday after a video was posted of a huge Golden Eagle snatching a toddler and promptly dropping the kid on the ground. As it turns out, the whole video is a hoax.
The video was shot at a park in Montreal by students at Centre NAD. The school released in a statement: “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.”
After it was posted, YouTube commenters were debating about whether it was real or fake. This isn’t the first hoax out of the school. Previously, students created a too-real video of a penguin escaping a zoo. One thing is for sure, these students deserve an A!
