I don’t know why the bird let the kid go. He was gaining altitude and could clearly carry the load.

I watched a film of an eagle killing a baby deer. He picked him up and let him fall several times to kill him. I’m sure the deer was heavier than this baby.

I think the kid’s mom probably scared it and a good thing she did before it gained any more altitude.

The baby probably just felt “not right” to him. It didn’t smell like food—think of the smell of human baby, with powder, laundry softener, diaper, baby poop, and lotions—and the crackling of the disposable diaper is not consistent with typical eagle prey, and had clothes instead of fur, and it just didn’t register like a rabbit or chihuahua. he might have just thought, “WTH, all these humans are screaming, this is more trouble than it’s worth. I’m gonna go find me a Yorkie to snack on.”

I bet that cute little red hat with the goofy eyeballs attracted the eagle somehow.

In that 1908 version, they were lucky that someone had left that long rope on the ground and already tied to a tree.

lol

Otherwise, it was pretty good, considering when it was made.

Kid had a parka on, probably didn’t latch onto the skin and only had some jacket in the talons, that kids guardian angels were working overtime.

Yes, you were right. It's fake video. . .

Now, it appears the amazing scene at Montreal's Mont-Royal Park was indeed fake.

A design school in Montreal called Centre NAD (also known as the National Animation and Design Centre)  posted on its website Wednesday that both eagle and baby were "were created in 3D animation and integrated in to the film afterwards." 

The video, uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday, 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," the posting said.

The school also assured nervous parents their children are not at risk of being plucked up by a massive eagle.
