I walked in a liquor store in BFE Kansas one time after pheasant hunting. Owner had the biggest hawk I've ever seen sitting on a big perch behind the
counter. It was so big I didn't even think it was real at first, I've seen smaller golden eagles (seriously). This thing was HUGE!
Anyway, I got to talking with this guy, and he said it was trained to hunt. I figured rabbits, but nope, he'd trained this bird to hunt pheasants! I
guess it's a thing, but I'd never heard of it. I asked him if it lived in the store and he said it did.
He said..."I've never had someone rob the place, but someone did try to break "out" one night".
I asked him what he meant by 'out'. Some thief apparently got in somehow and the hawk cornered him. When the cops showed up he was trying to break a
window to get "out"!! LOL!!! **snort**
(perfect candidate for America's dumbest criminals!)
