Eagle Snatch YouTube Hit Exposed as Hoax


Millions of viewers were shocked to see a shockingly realistic video depicting a golden eagle swooping down over a park, momentarily snatching a toddler in its talons and dropping it unharmed a few feet away.

The Montreal Center NAD School of Computer 3D animation was quick to announce that its film was nothing but a remarkable blend of computer-generated images with live action. The eagle and child were pure CGI.”Our students produced the video in twelve hours and have proved their mastery of the art. No one was harmed in the production of the video.” (BBC)
