Audubon comes to UMW with a video camera. The Jackal’s Junkyard (a brand spanking new UMW Blogs blog) has edited and uploaded five minutes of video footage featuring a hawk devouring a squirrel on UMW campus. Needless to say, this blog is now the front page feature at UMW Blogs -I will be the first to say that someone else should have editorial control over this space, but until that time enjoy!
Here are some more details from Psychojackal’s post:
It proceeds to devour the squirrel on the ground, right between a pair of heavily used pathways. It stayed there for over two hours as people grouped around to watch and didnâ€™t seem the least bit phased that it had an audience…Now, granted Iâ€™d never attempt to get as close to a wild animal, especially one thatâ€™s eating, as some of the people did (within 2 feet or so), because thatâ€™s just foolish, but I did get within about 4-5 feet and was able to zoom in on the camera to get some decent shots.
