Eagle grabs baby … or does it? You make the call

You know we're just renting this planet from Mother Nature, right? And we're not even always the dominant species on the planet! Take this scene from Montreal earlier this week, when an eagle apparently grabs a baby and flies into the air, ready to take the kid back to ... well, best not to think too much about it.

Now, in sports terms: it's not surprising that an eagle couldn't hold onto its catch; we've seen that all year with Philadelphia. As with everything Eagle-related, I blame Michael Vick and Andy Reid for this baby-grab.

Also, one final note: this video is almost certainly fake; it's just too perfectly horrifying. But just because it didn't happen doesn't mean it couldn't. Happy holidays, everybody!
