The eagle may be majestic when flying high in the sky. But the eagle is also a bird of prey. A family in Montreal, Quebec found this out when a golden eagle swooped out of the sky and attempted to grab a toddler in its talons.

The video, which received over a million views in its first day online, clearly shows the eagle picking up the child can carrying him a short distance before dropping him.

UPDATE: The video has now been revealed to be a hoax perpetrated by college students studying film-making.

Note the video contains NSFW language.
