This video hit the web on December 18th and in the last couple of days it has gone viral with over 17 million hits. But it turns out the shocking sight of a Golden Eagle trying to snatch a baby right off the ground is actually a hoax.

The video was taken in Montreal and earlier this week a college student from the area admitted that he and a couple friends made the video using 3D animation. Both the eagle and the child were added to the video using the special technology.

I'm happy to hear this is fake, I know I'm not the only one who was legitimately freaked out by this video. In case you haven't seen it yet, check it out.
