Hare Hawking

Tom McIntyre (his most recent book is here) sent this You Tube of a Saker falcon attempting to catch a hare in Arabia. It is much like we do, except that WE still use salukis to help (ok, Asian tazis) and we don't chase the hare with the truck!

The hare still gets away though-- which also happens with us more often than not.

Just got this video in Steve. When you view at YouTube, look to the code written into the box called "embed." Just copy that and paste it into the blog post when viewing it in the edit HTML mode.

Talk about a country in which "a jackrabbit would have to pack a lunch"!

What they need are those kids from Florida that catch them by hand.
