“The eagle ate your baby!” That might have been the phrase if this beastly bird had actually succeed in snatching up a toddler from a Montreal park. The Golden Eagle is the largest bird of prey in North America and able to take down a small deer, so a toddler probably wouldn’t be too much trouble.

Probably the only thing that saved this little rugrat from becoming eagle chow is a healthy diet of processed food and snacks. The lesson we can all take away from this is that obesity prevents eagle attacks. Fatten up those kids, people!
