Video: Students admit faking clip of Golden eagle snatching a toddler in Canada

It might at first glance look like one of the most startling moments of man versus nature ever caught on camera. It is, in fact, a hoax.

In footage uploaded onto YouTube on Tuesday a golden eagle is seen circling above a sunlit park in Montreal while onlookers murmur their admiration in French.

Suddenly the bird swoops down and seizes a child who is sitting contentedly on the grass. The eagle takes to the air but after a moment the todder falls from its talons. The minute-long film ends with the weeping child being consoled by a parent.
