After being involved in skydiving for about 2 years, I got a baby hawk from a nest, and was nicely grooming it to become part of a skydiving demo.

It flew to me, and was such a beautiful bird, it sure would have brought more demos of my team, with a hawk flying to us on the ground, so the spectators could see up close.

One day, some jerk decided that I shouldnt have the hawk, and he went to my home when I and my family were away, and he kicked the wire mesh cage in, letting the hawk out.

I should have know he wouldnt go too far because I was his meal ticket, but I never found him. A neighbour later told me that the Ministry of Lands and Forests came and got him from a tree about 4 or 5 houses down the street from mine.

How I wish I had kept him, he was so beautiful....almost solid black, witha rust colored tail.

I do think I know who let him out....a brother, now deceased, although I would have a hard time proving it.
