It's been a slow sports week. Unless you're interested in who plays quarterback for the 6-8 Jets, there hasn't been much going on. That said, I saw a video earlier this week of an eagle scooping up a young child. I was immediately suspicious because a) the guy filming just happened to be shooting an eagle seconds before it tried to eat a kid; b) the father (or caretaker) of the child isn't panicking as much as he should be; and c) they're speaking in French, and you should never trust the French.
Turns out that my suspicions were true: the video is a fake.
It was made by a couple of film students in Canada, who used 3D animation to throw the child and eagle into the film. Fellow skeptics, ones that are smarter and more tech-savvy than I, dissected the clip frame-by-frame and saw problems with the shadowing.
You have to give these guys credit, though. It looks real enough on first glance to be taken seriously. I probably would've been more inclined to believe it if they had used a pelican, a more fearsome predatory bird, instead of an eagle.
