Save the Houbara

5504 - Peregrin Falcon

No...this fierce looking bird of prey is not a houbara (even the name sounds tragic!) fact it's the predator..falcon. Falconry is a popular sport here among the locals. To train this sharpen their killer instinct i guess...the poor houbara (looks like a cross between the road runner and a quail)becomes the play toy.Unfortunately, recent reports show their population is dwindling...due mainly to this crazy sport. To save the endangered specie..the government is spending huge sum of money to breed them...i thought they should put it to better use by educating the hobbyists...train them instead to attack rude people..including taxi drivers who horn incessantly, waiter/waitress with in your face look..etc
