    I don't know one way or the other for sure. But Hot Clicks supplied no real strong evidence against. Everything they mentioned was very flimsy stuff.

    Last thing you should worry about is losing your bobber ----your name just went to the wrong Santa list. I can see Sam long gone by Christmas

    Very real and not the 1st time. Do a search and find a top 30 list. Some very sad stories in there.

    Guys, its a total fake. Don't get caught up in this. :D They used a falcon and a doll and CGI.

    They had some bird biologist say already it wasn't a GE. There are missing shadows etc throughout the frames.


    They do however snatch dogs and chickens here in Alaska.

    It's fake.

    The “Golden Eagle Snatches Kid” video, uploaded to YouTube on the evening of December 18, was made by Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault and Félix Marquis-Poulin, students at Centre NAD, in the production simulation workshop class of the Bachelors degree in 3D Animation and Digital Design.

    The production simulation workshop class, offered in fifth semester, aims to produce creative projects according to industry production and quality standards while developing team work skills. Hoaxes produced in this class have already garnered attention, amongst others a video of a penguin having escaped the Montreal Biodôme.

    Except that the digital animation school admitted responsibility for it

    I saw Santa's gifts for people on his naughty and nice list. He is giving red and white Mercedes.

    well, that may have been a hoax, but i meant i've read other stories like it. the link:

    http://biofort.blogspot.com/2007/11/avian-abductions-lawndale-was-last.html

    many of these are pretty old. not saying they're all true, just other stories like this i've seen.

    more that i've read show that it's highly unlikely an eagle *could* do this as they simply can't lift up that much weight.

    Depends on what kind of tablet you're taking.

    What does this even mean? I don't understand the English being used.

    Did he steal a tablet and he is trying to cut/paste from it? Why would you steal a tablet during the holidays? Why not just wait to see if you got one under the tree?

    :confused:

    :confused: Cut and paste is standard on Android. I can do it on my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 exactly the same way.

    How do you highlight what you want to copy? Trying to learn.

    Because there aren't as many eagles in developed countries so its much less likely to happen.

    I've seen a ?kite in Africa take a goat (kid) so they can lift more than you'd think.

    I've also had a hawk fly within a foot of me trying to catch a quail. The quail flew into me then ran into a hedge. We were rabbit hunting and there were three of us and several dogs.
