You may think your child knows not to talk to strangers, but you could be wrong.
That's because one YouTuber just video taped a social experiment where he showed unsuspecting parents just how easy it was for him to lure their children away from a park.
While the parents said their kids knew better than to talk to someone who looked suspicious, JoeySalads proved that all you needed to gain a kid's trust is a puppy.

It's a rather chilling video because it really was super easy for the prankster to faux-abduct some kids, but hopefully this will be a learning opportunity for parents everywhere!
You can never be too careful.
Ch-ch-check out the kidnapping social experiment (below)!!!

Aspiring actress/popstar Michelle Marie Gopaul told friends she was preggers and even registered for baby gifts, even though she had no bun in her oven.
Instead, she swiped 1-month-old Roma Patel last Thursday night in Toronto. Gopaul placed ads for an infant to star in a Bollywood movie and offered $7,500 to find a baby girl "of Indian background."
Viral and Sejal Patel decided to bring their daughter Roma. The actress loved the child and asked to take her to a private room to see how she reacted to strangers. Then, she sneaked out a back door and hopped in a cab with the baby.
"It's a girl!! I can't wait until my little pincess [sic] Valentina arrives!!" boasted Gopaul online.
After a four-hour search, the baby was found. Gopaul was arrested and charged with child abduction. She is being held without bail.
