When Augusta's Donna Kilmer arrived home on New Year's Eve, she was surprised to find two obviously belligerent assailants in a fight to the death in her front yard.The instigator was a red-tailed hawk, the victim a crow. Both survived.
They rolled on the ground, exchanging blows. Blood sprayed across her snowy front yard.
She could hardly believe her eyes. She slammed the brakes in her car and stopped midway up the driveway. Next she did what any rational human being would do in such a situation: she sprinted inside her house to find the new digital camera her daughter had given her as a Christmas gift the week before. She needed to get this on film. [Source]
Surely an inauspicious start to the New Year.
