Eagle Snatches Baby?

Payback for DDT? Eagles cleaning up what the stork dropped in some sort of avian circle of life? This video (going viral in 3-2-1 already there) of a golden eagle baby snatching is going to horrify parents and make the rest of us giggle … and duck every time a bird of prey swoops overhead.

Deadspin put it quite nicely:

Has anyone tried to warn us of the impending giant fucking eagle menace? Is this merely the first warning shot? We must be vigilant, or else the giant fucking eagles of the world will make off with all of our children. BUT ONLY IF WE LET THEM.

 The slow-motion portion set to music is really what makes the video

 

Some YouTube commenters are calling this a fake, but this is not the first time eagles have attacked small children or full grown humans for that matter. But it is perhaps the first time it was set to the theme music from Chariots of Fire. 

UPDATE:

Fakery confirmed, darn it.
