A falcon killed one of our chickens and a neighbors chicken today. How do we know it was a falcon? Because the little girl whos chicken it had ahold of at first CAUGHT the falcon and was trying to get her chicken out of it's claws! She got the chicken, but it was too late. Then they called to warn us about what had happened so we could make sure that none of our chickens were loose but it was too late for us also. Chee-Chee was dead beside the creek and feathers were everywhere. The falcon had the nerve to come back and my daughter went chasing after it with a stick and it didn't fly off until she was only 3 feet away from hitting it. It keeps coming back and doesn't act scared of us at all. I want to know WHO made up these stupid migratory bird laws protecting falcons and vultures, which we have ALL OVER around our house. Someone shot a deer the other day and there were 16...yes, we counted 16 vultures flying above our yard obviously looking for the deer that had been shot (because the moron that kills the deer guts them and leaves their "leftovers" in the woods instead of being a responsible hunter and disposing of them properly or burying them). I'm really having a hard time preventing myself from going out and killing them now.
