Note from TRC Regarding Eagle and Child Video

Many of you saw the fake video yesterday of the eagle supposedly snatching a child. TRC staff spent much of yesterday talking with reporters and concerned citizens who called for more information. We were happy to see this video debunked so rapidly on a national level as we were very concerned about this negative and misleading image of eagles. And as always, we were also happy to be able to provide scientifically accurate information to people looking for the truth.

  1. Unfortunately most of the debunking I saw in the media seemed to be purely from an animation standpoint, and not the plausibility of the scenario. Even if the video were flawless, anyone with knowledge of raptor behavior would know such a thing could never have happened!
