This doesn’t happen often, but it does happen occasionally–an eagle attempts to snatch a human child. Happily for the baby and his parents, he’s just a little too heavy for the eagle to bring back to its nest. That’s how these rare incidents usually turn out.
There’s some feeling out there that this video is a fake. But it’s a fact that large eagles sometimes attempt to prey on small children… So don’t leave your baby just sitting there if eagles are around.
Oh, what a Roman augur would have made of this incident!
