Put A Camera On An Eagle And What Do You Get? Soaring VIDEO

If this is a trick, it's a spectacular one.

A video that purports to have been taken by a GoPro or similarly small camera strapped to an eagle soaring above Chamonix, France, is quickly going viral.

Before we leave, we do need to mention Fly Like An Eagle — just to be sure it's running through everyone's brains.
