    Well, that answers that, doesn't it?

    It was a pretty convincing fake, I have to admit.

    The eagle glided. He didn't ascend, he glided downwards. That's what he's saying. Just like a 50 pound hang glider can glide a being much heavier than itself.

    Yeah, I could see someone doing that - the attack was certainly real tho. I suppose using software that is presently available, one could replace a rabbit (or whatever the bird was attacking) with a baby.

    However the notion that a huge predator bird wouldn't try to snatch a 15lb baby is ludicrous. I saw a hawk try to take a small "lap dog" one time - and that was real.

    Experiments with captive eagles indicate that adults require about 3/4 pound (1/3 kg) of meat per day to maintain their weight; young, growing eagles require much more food.

    Accounts of the weight that an eagle can carry in flight often have been misstated. Experiments indicate that, without wind to assist them, even large eagles cannot take off from flat ground with more than 5 or 6 pounds (2 to 3 kg) in their talons. Eagles flying into the wind and taking prey from hillsides, however, sometimes carry animals of twice those weights for considerable distances.

    Being that you dodged that question there I'll take it that you didn't watch it... and that my post above this one with a bunch of Eagle FAQ's says it is possible.

    Here's an eagle actually attacking a human boy. Not to fly off with but to take down. Mongolian hunting gone wrong... happens around :47

    I cant believe they didnt snap its ****in neck. Instead they try to pull it off the boy without harming it..... My first thought would have been to separate its spinal cord as soon as possible.

    On a separate note: If these guys could do this this well (the OPs vid)... Imagine what some elitist or CIA could do.
