This one flood me at first:

...but is a fake, apparently:

  The “Golden Eagle Snatches Kid” video, uploaded to YouTube on the evening of December 18, was made by Normand Archambault, Looc Mireault, Antoine Seigle and Filix 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.

– Centre NAD, Montreal

I wonder though if this has actually ever happened? It would be terrifying.
