The "Killer Hawk"--Again!

Also in todays Sunday Gazette-Mail [Charleston, West Virginia], semi-retired sportswriter Danny Wells displays his ignorance by taking yet another swipe at West Virginia’s most famous Red-tailed Hawk. To wit: “with one deadly swoop by the hawk, the Capitol grounds are turned red with the blood of the squirrel. And then the Capitol grounds ain’t [and this guy is a professional newspaper columnist?] so lovely.” Wells is apparently of the opinion that natural interactions between predators (hawks) and prey (squirrels) reflect a nature out of balance and is quick to label the actions of the hawk as "evil," a human quality it doesn't deserve. When are they going to start teaching basic ecological concepts in high school?
