City sponsoring hawk-themed events
Original post made by Sam on Aug 27, 2007
Now I see, the city as a whole is sponsoring a series of events promoting hawks, including a hawk demonstration from the mayor. I thought I read that the city had said that keeping wild animals in city limits was illegal.
How is this right? And why is the city officially now promoting hawks being kept in back yards, particularly when they are fed live animals? Has the humane society looked at this?

I honestly don't see a problem. The hawk is probably a lot less messy than all the people who don't pick up after their dogs in city parks.

Hosterman should come over to my house and have her hawk hunt all the squirrels nearby. They are a real nuisance to our garden and our roof because neighbors feed them peanuts, which they deposit between the shingles of our roof which then get damaged by blue jays and crows trying to get at the peanuts.

Hawks gotta eat too!
At least they don't bark incessantly nor use your yard as their personal urine depository at night like people's cats.
