Because we have some badass birds in our park.
Dr. David Bird, our local bird expert (not kidding, that's his real name) says it's an osprey, not a golden eagle, and that it may be a hoax. May.
It looked real to me. I'm going to keep a close eye on Buddy so he doesn't end up as some bird's dinner.
UPDATE: Yup, total hoax. A project done for a film class as a challenge to see how films can quickly go viral. I don't think they were expecting this much attention.
