The clip, which was posted to YouTube on December 18, shows what looks to be a Golden eagle swooping down on toddler, grabbing the boy's shoulders, and lifting him several feet in the air before the baby slips from its grasp.
Moments after the attack, the man shooting the footage can be heard swearing and running towards the child and the guardian.
North America's largest bird of prey, the Golden eagle usually prey on rabbits, squirrels, fish and other birds. There have been reports, however, of golden eagles killing or attacking the young of larger animals such as deer or mountain goats.
