Poor Red Shouldered Hawk
[insert birdie joke here]
By Kickntrue on 3/6/08
Nationwide Tour pro Tripp Isenhour was filming a segment recently and a hawk nearby was making noise so he did what any reasonable person would do; he hit a golf ball at the bird, killing it. Too bad he's being charged with cruelty to animals and faces a $10k $1500 fine. Seriously? How good does he have to be just to hit the thing? (Story)

That should be made into one of the PGA "These guys are good" commercials.

Ha- seriously. The other stupid thing to me. If it's hunting season and you have a permit, it's fine. But the second it's not within the rules of when you are allowed to kill animals- it's a $1500 fine.

That does it, I'm going deer hunting with my Taylor Made Burner and a sack of pro v ones.

Oops, you're right, and in my case a hell of a lot more accurate.

Of course... golf balls would preserve the taste better. You wouldn't have to clean around the birdshot.

He deserves whatever fine he gets. From reading the story, it's not like this was just a "lucky" shot, first swing, kind of thing.
