Chimpanzees are eating peoples faces and hands

Chimpanzees are eating people's faces and hands, great horned owls are attacking cross country skiers and Burmese pythons are multiplying in Florida.

But all that is trivial next to the fact that I lost both Scrabble games today over at Jas and Kathy's house. I managed to lose the second game against Kathy even though I scored all seven of my letters on my first turn.

The world is upside down. But at least we don't have eagles this smart living around here.


Watch the whole thing. The first goat he kills is a little one. Later they show him proving that he can also kill a full sized one. This video will forever change your attitude about hiking on trails near cliffs the way Jas and I did at the Grand Canyon a few years ago and Linda and I did in Canyonlands a couple of years ago.

As I watched the video, I realized that the eagle could just as easily fly off with a fairly large child.

When you consider how many people keep wild creatures as pets, is it any wonder that they end up as "Breaking News"...

Many, if not most children deserve to be flown away with.

As to the keeping of wild animals as pets, I'm somewhat sympathetic because my frog remains a wild animal after twenty plus years of my attempts to tame him. Fortunately we didn't get Alex a boa constrictor as a pet.
