    Va. man charged with killing hawk to help squirrel

    VIENNA, Va. – For a Virginia doctor, squirrels are a man's best friend, too. Thomas Shepler, a hand surgeon, shot a hawk to death in his backyard when he said the bird was eyeing a young squirrel that he and his wife had helped raise.

    Shepler, 65, said the hawk had previously killed an adult squirrel near his suburban Washington home in Vienna. When the doctor tried to chase away the bird over the weekend by yelling and throwing a crowbar at it, the hawk didn't leave the area.

    So Shepler got a shotgun and killed it........

    Rumor has it, he is actually working his ass off at work the last 3 weeks or so with another week to go.

    Seems he is visiting on breaks though lately.
    ;D

    I heard there was a sale on "The Beast."

    Marrdro probably can't post in the condition he's in, or he'd have to move himself down the ole' spreadsheet.
