Lots of people who posted this on twitter this morning have been apologising and saying it's been exposed as a fake.

Its fake. The child doesnt fall immediately after the eagle lets go.

no fake as in a trained bird

You think there are a lot of tame golden eagles trained to take toddlers from parks?

I would have said fake as well. Birds aren't that stupid.

Awwwwww, is it a fake? Doesn't surprise me.

the toddler probably had a chunk of meat on its head,
how else do they train eagles?

Fake! I'm wondering how many of you would run to help without throwing down the camera first? If it were genuine I think the camera would have ended up on the grass pointing at the sky. The bird seemed to be flying in a style suited to display rather than hunting. It would never catch genuine prey like that.

I think it's not a real toddler, the real one is in the buggy, and the swap is made while the camera is pointing at the ground. I also think I need to get out more

Not real.

CGI affects.

" However, the lifelike sequence was today claimed to be an elaborate CGI hoax."

I live in Canada and it is not news here. It's a fake.

I can see it's a dummy.....but the 2nd time the snatching is shown....RIGHT before the talons touch the toddler..he seems to duck slightly...or is it my imagination?

It's a hoax
