This just goes to show how much a lot of people don't know about nature. If they had the squirrels I'm afflicted with, they'd be *glad* to see the hawk do its natural thing.
I know that New York was using hawks to prey on pigeons, but discontinued that when one of 'em attacked a pet chihuahua, probably mistaking the little beast for a rat...
Uggh, this makes me ill. We're really far distanced from growing up on farms and seeing animals living and dying, and that's a bad thing, IMHO. It sounds utterly bizarre to me (but I'm not a parent, and have no desire to be one) that watching a hawk eat a squirrel is something that the chyiillllldrun (sorry, "children") should be sheltered from seeing.
