MONTREAL -

A video posted on YouTube is creating quite a buzz, but is it legit?

The video shows an eagle snatching a toddler at a park in Montreal.

A man is recording video when the bird when suddenly swoops down and grabs the boy's clothing with its claws, lifting him a few feet off the ground.

The eagle carried the boy, who appears to be about 1 year old, a few feet before dropping him.

The boy is then seen crying as a woman and man try to comfort him.

On Wednesday, however, the website gawker.com pointed out several reasons why the video could be fake.
