Baby-snatching eagle clip confirmed as a hoax

Thursday 20 Dec 2012 7:58 a.m.

A video that appeared to show an eagle swooping down and picking up a baby from a park in Montreal has been confirmed as a fake.

The clip, uploaded to YouTube yesterday, already has nearly 3 million views.

This morning it was revealed to be a clever animation, produced by students at Montreal animation school Centre NAD.

The school hosts an annual "hoax the internet" exam, and it would appear the creators of this clip have – if you'd excuse the pun – passed with flying colours.
