up close with falcons

Last week I walked over to campus to see falcons as part of CMU's Earth Day activities. The owner has 13 and told me that he hunts with them, so they fly free and return to him. (I didn't ask him to expand on the hunting part.) He also said he had to stop doing so many education sessions with young kids because they get really grossed out when they see the falcons eating dead animals. Yeah, I can understand that.
