vossiewulf: "It appears to me to be CGI from right where the eagle starts turning right, it makes a hard right turn without any banking which is not really possible, then its deceleration before it supposedly picks up the kid would require like an impulse drive." That's what I said in one of the earlier threads that went red, I'm sure more than a few people looking at the greened one saw the same thing. I mean really, besides that, if it had actually happened the wildlife officials would be going nuts, hunters would be blasting away at every eagle within 50 miles, every paper in Montreal would be running it on the front page, schools would be on lockdown and parents wouldn't be letting their little children outside, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria.

moops: Maybe it's such an old meme that the youngsters don't know of it. It's at least circa 2005.

Mega Steve: Is it too late to make a Beastmaster joke?
Sybarite: But what about the video of the coconut and the swallows?
Helena Handbasket: They played this video on the early morning news here while I was getting ready for work, and my immediate reaction was to yell "Bullshiat!" at the screen. Glad to see my gut reaction was legitimate. They're so gullible around here.
fqhollis: Mega Steve: Is it too late to make a Beastmaster joke?Not if it includes Tanya Roberts pix.
jonjr215: Eagles aren't generally seen in town...
farkingnotworking: Meh, Rembrandt did it first:
Generation_D: Wasn't in on this one, but suspect anyone from the Northwest would have spotted it instantly. We have Eagles around here sometimes more common than crows. Not a big thing. They might try to take your pekingese, but a human baby is pretty much not happening.
CSB:We were staying at a B&B in rural Washington, and at breakfast one of the proprietors told us the story of a big storm that blew through the town a few years back, knocking over a tree that had a huge bald eagle's nest in it.After the storm blew out, many in the town wanted to inspect the nest, because, hey, giant eagle's nest!Littered in with the feathers, bones and other debris were dozens of small pet collars.

farkingnotworking: At the same time, some people have been disturbed by the fact that you see some non-Jesus toddler genitals in that painting, plus the kid is peeing with the aforementioned junk while he's being abducted.
JungleBoogie: Here's the thing - big eagles can drag baby goats off cliff faces. I recall seeing it on a PBS nature show, and found the video here (warning: images of baby goats being killed).So, it's not incredible that a bird that size could drag and lift a limp child a few feet. That is clearly possible. The question is, whether this video is indeed real. I recall the video of the Marine throwing the puppy off the cliff in Iraq and folks were saying it wasn't real, while it absolutely was. Lots of experts weighing in saying, "That's not real." This may or may not be real but I think for a very big eagle and a very small child, it is possible for the bird to drag it and even lift it a bit. We'd need to know what the max weight a golden eagle, or a very large raptor in general, could lift.
