Hunting falcon killed after hitting car

By Staff

A desert safari by Kuwaiti falconers ended in a tragedy when the bird was killed after missing its targeted pigeon and ramming into a car.

A 12-second YouTube film, carried by the Kuwaiti Arabic language daily Alanba, showed the falcon chased the pigeon in the air as its owners watched from their parked cars in the heart of the Kuwaiti desert.

“The falcon was nearly close to its prey, but instead of taking it, the falcon hit the parked car and died,” the paper said.
