    Big Bird goes rogue

    OK, relax, it wasn't "Big Bird" from Sesame Street...but a big & really beautiful bird you'd never think would do this.

    Yes, & very misguided. But this isn't a political forum, ok?

    I saw that too.
    Rest in Peace, Mr. Hajos.
    Those of who work with large animals take what precautions we can, and accept the risks.

    What an unfortunate incident. I am glad they didn't immediately euthanize the bird and are investigating.

    Their description of the animal reminds me a lot of a velociraptor... I would have never thought a bird would be placed under the same level of classification as alligators. TIL something new.

    I've heard of this happening with certain large-breed dogs too, that when their owner falls, they try to assume dominance by attacking. Truly sad for this
    man & I hope his birds have a decent future despite this accident. Humans tend to blame the animals & put them to death as "punishment" after such incidents-
    but they're wild animals...it's not their fault that we put them in this position, of living with us.
