Video Showing Eagle Snatching a Baby was Animated, Says School

A video showing an eagle coming down and seizing a tiny tot from a Montreal park went viral for many hours. The video while raising concerns amongst people about the baby gave rise to a number of questions as well. But, a recent report says that the video did not show anything real.

Yes, it was Wednesday afternoon when it was accepted by a Montreal animation school that their third-year students had developed the video hoaxing the story. The school told that the golden eagle in the video dubbed "The Golden Eagle Snatches Kid" was not real.

The child as well as the eagle were 3D animated and were included into the real shooting so that it comes out as a real incidence. It was a part of the simulation workshop class, in which Félix Marquis-Poulin, Antoine Seigle, Loic Mireault and Normand Archambault took part.

They had asked their teacher on approval of the project that in case the video developed by them crossed 100,000 views on YouTube, they should get 100% in the assignment.

Sources quoted a spokesman for the school as saying, "Our goal was never meant to make people believe that a child had been attacked by an eagle. It was simply to showcase the talent".
