Eagle Baby Attack: Montreal Toddler Seemingly Snatched By Golden Eagle (VIDEO)

Eagle Baby Attack: Montreal Toddler Seemingly Snatched By Golden Eagle (VIDEO)

“I need to voice my disgust about people trying to be funny in the comments... both here and on reddit. I was not going to say anything... but I noticed an alarming trend with this story and the story about the baby that had the feather removed from its cheek. People are not asking if the babies are OK... or how are they babies doing now. I mean the kid in this video fell (maybe seven feet) ... And all people can do is try to be witty... What if you find out later that the kid had a broken arm? Or in the case of the baby that had a feather remove from it's cheek, what if it had an infection later... how witty would you think you comment is then?”

“How is even a fake of this funny? Is a fake video of a child being beat funny? NO. Our society is incredably(?) callous. Anything showing a child being injured isn't all that funny.”

“Lots of people on this site made jokes on a story about suicide a while ago, just because the person had had some cosmetic surgery. There seems to be a scarily large empathy gap.”

“Or...or what would all these heartless jerks feel if the eagle had been SUCCESSFUL in it's baby snatching? And... and raised the boy as its own and taught him the ways of Birds of Prey... and then the boy grew into a TEENAGER and learned advanced physics, engineering and thermodynamics when he wasn't being tutored by his avian taskmaster in the ways of roadkill and rodents and... and... decided to wreak HAVOK and VENGEANCE on the cold, detached, desensitized overly mediated and spiritually removed humans. And he would be known by his SCREAMING APPROACH and would become known as EAGLE BOY! No... No... that's no good... And he would be called RAPTOR CHILD!!! First issue coming SOOOOOOONNN!”

“This is exactly the opposite direction we should be going in... Why this is the front page of the tech section is embarrassing. America needs FASTER internet at lower rates... not this garbage. We need to have it so that it is no big deal to stream content 24 seven at fast speeds. Why is this important? Think of working from home for starters. One of the reason we are falling behind as a a country is because our internet is too slow to provide more remote opportunities. We can't really do nationwide remote class rooms.”

“" America needs FASTER internet at lower rates."
I agree with you totally. I think this was what Stokols intends when he said “My goal is to disrupt the market and introduce competition that brings down prices to consumers,” however, I am not sure it will really work. I guess it depends on customer satisfaction.”

“I AM MORE APPALED by the lack of compassion in the comments then the acts of this 14 year old girl. This poor 14 year old must have been truly terrified and confused and in a world of pain. The fact the people are leaving such venoms and condemning comments make me even sadder. Can adults not see that a 14 year old girl acting this way was already in a world of pain and confusion? What will condemnation of her accomplish?”

seandinthea on Oct 3, 2012 at 19:02:39

“Nope, she deserves all the hate. Although it doesn't seem like she had a very good or supportive family, which is sad.”

NotAsaint on Oct 3, 2012 at 19:02:12

“Sorry but she deserves no special consideration because she's 14. She's a ruthless murderer, period! Yes, the whole thing is very sad, but she's the one who opened her legs and tried acting like an adult-she now deserves to be treated like an adult!! I was too in her position at 14 but miscarried. I most def would have gone to my mom, even though we were estranged! I didn't have loving support,but I knew it wasn't up to me to KILL it!”

MarryAnn on Oct 3, 2012 at 18:48:23

“I agree. It's tragic that she killed the baby. It's tragic that she's 14. It's tragic that so many people are so judgmental and expect such exemplary behavior from a 14 year old girl. So many posts are so sexist. I'm surprised by the pro-life comments that are aligned with treating her as an adult and giving her the maximum sentence allowable. We still don't know who impregnated her, nor the age of the boy/man. We don't know whether she was raped, which by definiton in most states she is incapable of consent. Other posts are calling her promiscuous. She is only 14. She is not an adult.”

“As a lifelong Democrat, resident of Chicago, and with a child that I CHOSE to send to CPS your poll is biased and leading to a favorable response in favor of the teachers. The strike is not about pay it is about teacher evaluations, and re-hiring fired teachers first.

If we had an education system (I mean nationally NOT just Chicago) you would have an argument. We are 50th in the world in educating our children. The entire system is need of overhaul from the ground up. Change is scary but is long in need. I comment Obama, Duncan, and the Mayor for trying to tackle this.

The Union was going to strike back in June. This is a test for the national stage to stop reform on a national level.”
