Eagle Tries to Fly Away with Kid

Holy. Shit.

Did anyone else see this video? Un-fucking-believable!

Maybe it thought the kid was a Hobbit who needed a lift to Mount Doom.

Damn that’s scary. Particularly as I have a 3 year old and a 4 month old.

Good to see the cameraman did not just keep on recording but ran over to help.

This is why I always walk around with a kettlebell in my pocket. Stuff your kids’ pockets with fishing weights so these big fucking eagles can’t carry them off.

I use these, instead.

Much better raptor.

That was ridiculous. Good thing that kid wasn’t a few ounces lighter or he’d have been bird food.

It is not until I see them next to people or other animals that I realize how fucking big some birds are.

Ben Franklin was right, Eagles are “of bad moral character.” We should have listened to him and made our national bird a Turkey

by christ! That’s mental

Possibly fake.

May be fake.

Of course.

One day soon it’s going to become impossible to distinguish between a real and a fake video.

There’s people arguing about it in the comments, saying that the baby continues upwards because of momentum or a thread of clothing that we can’t see in the low res video, but it looks too much like wire-fu to me.
