MONTREAL (AP) - The creators of a video purporting to show an eagle swooping down and snatching a toddler from a Montreal park that went viral after being posted on YouTube earlier this week now say it was a hoax.

The four people behind the video said Thursday that the video was intentionally created as a part of a class project to create a viral video hoax at a new-media training institute in Montreal.

The video has been viewed millions of times on YouTube and written about in various newspaper and websites around the globe.
