Another falcon killed at the hands of a human.

Another falconer suffers the loss of his beloved falcon due to the wrath of an idiot who thinks that raptors and predators are evil.  The perpetrator needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law and sued as well.  Make them a lifetime felon, take their assets, their probation shall include community service to a wildlife related center or cause for 20 -30 years.

As I view photos of my Anubis.  I hope that we find his killer(s).  He is sorely missed and I will treasure him the rest of my life.  I hope that when I am gone, I get to fly with all of the hawks and falcons, eagles, and owls, that touched my life have passed on.

It is a new year.  Lets hope that those who killed my beloved Anubis are found.

A lovely poem written by one of Anubis' Admirers:


Anubis


Anubis, beautiful Anubis,
 I see you fly so free
Your playground
Is as high and wide
As the eye can see
With beating wings you are
The master of the sky
Prey in terror seeks to find
Shelter from your eye.

Circling around your world
Upon the air you go
You experience the world through
sight and feel
As only you can know

Then is happens,
There you spot it
Your most terrified prey
You fly high and faster,
To attack you victim
On this beautiful day

The hunt has  begun
Hearts start to race
The pace starts to quicken. 
The thrill of the chase. 

Circles tighten
Sunlight brightens
The wind lightens
Prey becomes frightened
The terror heightens
You wings slighten. 

Then it happens
What was feared to happen
You swoop down to make your kill

Death comes quickly
To your latest victim
For your daily meal. 
But it’s the law of nature
And who can say
Your victim had a bad deal. 

You take off again
Upon the winds
Of the sky so vast
Freedom is yours
And beauty as well
May forever it last

Anubis, beautiful Anubis
I see you fly so free
Your playground
Is as high and wide
As the eye can see
With your beating wings you are
The master of the sky
And nothing, oh but nothing
Can find shelter from you eye. 

By Tommy Barrios  2005.

This poem is about a beloved
