The video of a kid being snatched up by a Golden Eagle is fake.  Although there was word yesterday that this was the case, there was no confirmation.  Two students at a digital animation school in Montreal are the pranksters.

It was part of an annual project the school calls its, quote, "Hoax the Internet Exam".  Last year a student uploaded footage of a penguin walking around the city that allegedly escaped from the Montreal zoo.  But it wasn't NEARLY as convincing as the eagle video is. Check that video out.
