Golfer Trpp Isenhour Kills a Hawk

Tripp Isenhour, who is a PGA tour golfer was recently with a film crew as they taped a show called "Shoot Like a Pro". There was a hawk that was apparently making some noise so to get rid of the problem what Tripp Isenhour did was shoot some golf shots at the hawk which he ended up succeeding at and has now been charged with cruelty to animals and killing a migratory bird. Tripp, whos real name is John Henry Isenhour III faces a maximum penalty of 14 months in jail and a $1,500.00 fine. According to court documents, Isenhour got upset when a red-shouldered hawk began making noise, forcing another take. He began hitting balls at the bird, then 300 yards away, but gave up. Isenhour started again when the hawk moved within about 75 yards, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer Brian Baine indicated in a report. Isenhour allegedly said "I'll get him now," and aimed for the hawk. "About the sixth ball came very near the bird's head, and (Isenhour) was very excited that it was so close," Baine wrote. A few shots later, witnesses said he hit the hawk. The bird, protected as a migratory species, fell to the ground bleeding from both nostrils.

He many have thought that he could not realistically hit the bird but he did and should be punished for his actions. This is really a dumb thing to do, a real sign of immaturity. Just seems like something a child would aim to do. Maybe his punishment should be to put him in the middle of a game of dodge ball and let them throw some golf balls at him instead of a dodge ball. Not that anyone would want one to crack one on his head and take him out or anything but just to give him a good hurting.
