I know “Star Wars” wasn’t filmed in space, and I have a healthy skepticism of any photo or video I see posted online.
Is this video showing a golden eagle lifting a baby off the ground legit? I’m not sure. If it’s fake, it’s pretty good computer-generated deception.
I do know this: One time while taking a break from a SD turkey hunt, I sat butt on the ground on a prairie knoll considering my next move. I was looking down at my boots but then caught a glimpse of something dropping from the sky toward me. I instantly raised my hands to shield my face as a hawk or falcon was only a few feet from my head. It wasn’t passing by; it was closing in on me!
Did the SD bird think the movement of my camo hat (I was dressed head to toe in camo) was a mouse or other small critter? I don’t know, but it scared the living you-know-what out of me.
There’s a chance the golden eagle in this video mistook the baby’s monkey-themed winter hat for a free meal. Or the whole thing is a hoax. Feel free to leave a comment.
Until next time ...
Christmas P.S. to young followers of this blog: Santa is real.
P.P.S. So as to not spoil your fun or influence your thinking regarding the video, I’m burying this note at the end. The eagle abduction video is fake. Click here to read how it was pulled off.
