Maybe We Need Another Congressional Hearing

Pro Golfer Apologizes for Killing Hawk

So some golfer gets made that a hawk won't shut up while he's filming a video. He drives his cart over to it and then drives balls at it. The hawk doesn't flinch. Then later it flies closer and makes more noise. So the golfer starts chipping balls at it again. Finally, he nails it and kills it. Oh, but he didn't intend the bird any malice and he and his family have adopted cats, see they love animals. A crew member on the shoot (who said nothing to stop the golfer - neither did any of the crew) said of the incident:

Jethro Senger, a sound engineer at the shoot, said hitting the bird was "basically like a joke to Isenhour)."

"He just kept saying how he didn't think he could have hit it, which I think is a stupid thing for a PGA Tour golfer to say," Senger said. "He can put a ball in a hole from hundreds of yards away, and here he is hitting line drives at something that's, I don't know, a couple hundred feet away?"
Ugh. Man. Screw steroid usage, this kind of misbehavior from adults should be cause for concern. Who does that? A guy named "Tripp" I suppose. What an ass.
