A. Definitely, that baby weighs at least three times what the bird does. Its an eagle not an ant.

B. I can see whiskey distillers doing this pre-Prohibition. I say real.

Darth is spot on here.

The FIRST bird photo may be real, if they were somehow to get a trained bird to sit like that...but lifting a baby...no way. There was an episode of MonsterQuest about exactly this.

I would say they are both photoshopped. The bird could not carry away a kid that size, and nobody would just stand there and take pictures of that. And the barrels are stacked way to high and straight to have been stacked that way, and on an uneven hill at that.

Canadian video school claims
responsibility for eagle hoax video


A Canadian animation school has admitted to staging
a video which received huge amounts of views today.

Millions of people worldwide were fooled by a
YouTube clip which appeared to show a
Golden Eagle almost snatching a baby from a park.

A statement said:

The "Golden Eagle Snatches Kid" video, uploaded to
YouTube on the evening of December 18, was
made by Normand Archambault, Looc Mireault,
Antoine Seigle and Filix Marquis-Poulin, students at
Centre NAD, in the production simulation workshop
class of the Bachelors degree in 3D Animation and
Digital Design.

The video shows a royal eagle snatching a young
kid while he plays under the watch of his dad.

The eagle then drops the kid a few feet away.

Both the eagle and the kid were created in 3D
animation and integrated in to the film afterwards.

That could be a rumor too if it was found on the internet.

And upon closer inspection of the barrels, you see the same number of barrels in each row but the barrels seem to get smaller yet they still meet evenly with no step row to row. Once you get past the second tier the barrels do not even look like barrels anymore. Furthermore ther is no background even though the pyramid is sitting on a hill.

Photoshop, and bad one at that.

Not to mention the barrels appear 8ft tall at the bottom. I realize the people are on a hill side but it doesn't equate to the size of the barrel vs a human. Unless those are some big barrels. I guessed they were an average barrel size?
