Consider this to be other than a gag, a prank, a stunt. This is a SERIOUS MATTER!
Should be condemned harshly and the perpetrators punished to the full extent of the law.
"Air Force falcon mascot suffers 'life-threatening' injury in Army prank"
AURORA THE GYRFALCON KIDNAPPED! SAFE AND SOUND NOW AND APPARENTLY RECOVERING!
"Sometimes a friendly prank between two football rivals can go too far."
"That seemed to be the case recently when one of the Air Force Academy's real-life falcon mascots was seriously hurt during a prank before the annual rivalry football game against Army, in upstate New York, according to an Air Force Academy official."
INJURY NOW NOT LIFE THREATENING. THE THOUGHT WAS AURORA MIGHT HAVE TO BE EUTHANIZED. HOPEFULLY THIS IS NOT SO!
Shame on the West Point cadets. At a minimum they need to assume the costs for the transport, care, veterinarian service, the pain and suffering to the USAFA [United States Air Force Academy] corps. Army cadets MUST atone for their guilt. Apologize profusely and IN PERSON contritely so and with great regret, remorsefully so..
