Is Bird's Snatching Children a Problem?
This is something that you hear as a myth but is it actually becoming a problem? A video is posted on YouTube of a Golden Eagle supposedly picking up a child as its swoops towards the ground, however now people are saying it could have been for an art project. Patrick Comins is a director of a bird conservation and once looking in detail at the video he saw that the bird is not a Golden Eagle. He believes either it was computer generated or staged.
