We've been duped! We've been hoodwinked! Bamboozled!
Yesterday, a video of a defenseless baby being snatched up by an eagle exploded its viral juices all over the internet, with over two MILLION viewers watching the vid.
Well, turns out, it was all smoke and mirrors!
A golden eagle flies majestically over a Montreal family at the park, minding its own business…doing eagle stuff.
Then the eagle sees a beautiful babe and decides to snatch it up!!!
This golden eagle refuses to give up!
A eaglet was found by a Utah wildlife volunteer after a dump fire set 5,500 acres of woodlands ablaze.
Officials believed the eaglet was lost but somehow, the golden eagle babe survived
It's so beautiful to see real harmony in nature.
We know for a fact that eagle could snatch that cat and fly off and eat it.
Or that fox could eat the cat, or possibly even lunge for the eagle.
But they're all just

The Decorah Eagle cam is that live-streaming webcam way up in a tree above an eagle's nest from last year.
It was an internet sensation as millions of people from over 200 countries watched the live feed.
Millions watched 24/7 has the eagles hatched their young and raised the chicks.
And now they're BACK!!
Their nest is in Decorah, Iowa 80 feet up in the air in a cottonwood tree. The nest is 6 feet across and 4 feet deep, weighing 1,000 pounds!
Best part? Last week, two eggs were laid in the nest!!
Hopefully we'll have some baby birdies soon.
Solute to one fabulous vet!
This injured bald eagle was brought to veterinarian, Jeff Cooney, after the birdie was hit by a car.
The bird stopped breathing after going under anesthesia and amazingly the increda-vet did his American duty and blew breath back into the bird's lungs with mouth to beak CPR!
The eagle, named Patriot, suffered spinal trauma and a broken wing, and both legs were paralyzed.
Cooney said it was unlikely that Patriot would fly again, but he might be strong enough to live at a wild bird center within a few months.
Ugh! Just days after the amazing footage of our national bird hatching out of it's shell was caught on camera, another has fallen victim to a disgusting crime.
Authorities have found a bald eagle shot and beheaded in northeast Louisiana and are offering a $2,000 reward for information about the crime.
The wildlife officials believe the bird was shot several days before it was discovered in a ditch on Sunday.
What a stupid and senseless crime. If convicted for killing or beheading an endangered bald eagle, the perpitrator can be fined up to $250,000 along with two years in prison.
We hope someone comes forward with information and justice gets served.
