So a few days ago at Mount Royal Park in Montreal (recognize the statue?). A giant fucking eagle was circling up above and decided a toddler looked like dinner. Watch as he swoops down and picks the kid up. I particularly love the guy shouting “Oh Shit?!” in a french accent.
Thankfully the kid wasn’t hurt but seriously, WTF!??! Did you even know we had eagles that big? Ever seen anything like this in Montreal?
Update: So this video was digitally created by NAD design students: Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault and Félix Marquis-Poulin as part of a school project. They will evidently be receiving a very good grade as grading is based on how viral a video goes…
I have heard of some people whose small dog was carried off while kayaking in the Haida islands…
And yes, eagles get that large, and probably larger. Wingspans can get huge.
