‘Golden Eagle Snatches Kid’ is Still Fake; Goes Viral

March 21, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

A YouTube video titled “Golden Eagle Snatches Kid” has again gone viral, but it’s fake.

The video was created in 2012, but it again was being shared Friday.

The video shows a park-like setting with a child before a bird comes down and grabs the boy.

“The video is not real footage. It is a clever fake created by students at a media-training centre. The video first went viral back in 2012, but again gained momentum in early 2014,” says Hoax-Slayer.
