Eagle snatches baby

UPDATE: The sleuths over at Gawker.com debunked the viral video of an eagle snatching a baby. The baby is a rag doll and the bird is not even an eagle, it's a falcon.

Statement by renowned bird expert Kenn Kaufman:

"'A golden eagle tries to snatch a baby in Montreal,' and the video goes viral. But it's faked. Golden Eagle is a scarce visitor in the Montreal area, but the bird in the video is not a Golden Eagle, nor anything else that occurs in the wild in North America. This was clearly a setup: using a falconer's bird, and probably a fake toddler for the distant scene. With all the ignorance about nature that's out there already, the last thing we need is this kind of stupid garbage."

    I have no idea of who Elle Varner is, but she looks HAWT on the cover of this month's Vibe Vixen magazine.

    Below are excerpts from the interview:

    Fans cry at your presence these days. How does that feel?
    "It’s nuts [laughs]. I feel, honestly, that you have to constantly remind yourself that you are just like everyone else because everyone is treating you like you’re not. People are making you their savior, their role model, their idol. People actually love you, and it’s crazy. They’re like, ‘Don’t change’ [laughs] but you have to in a way. There’s no way not to. But you still want to keep the part of you that is pure."
