The video shows an Eagle snatching a baby in a park, left alone by his father, who was standing a few feet away. The father, realized what had happened, started chasing the bird, but luckily the Eagle, struggling to fly away with the baby, dropped the small child a few feet away from where it picked it up.
This is what the Center NAD training center has to say about the fake video:
The “Golden Eagle Snatches Kid” video, uploaded to YouTube on the evening of December 18, was made by Antoine Seigle, Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault and Félix 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.
