    Yeah. Or owls, hawks, fox, coyotes. It's a jungle out there!

    Murder most fowl.

    Henpecked to death - how many husbands identify with that fox?

    Humans do it also, witness politics...

    Saw a falcon grab a squirrel in my backyard - and finished it off, on the ground. Very quickly, efficiently. So I'm still impressed by the idea a rooster could handle a hawk, which presumably is a larger bird. I have handled wounded hawks, gingerly, wearing gloves. Cover the head - the beaks, and the claws, are remarkable, and strong.[/QUOTE]

    Indeed.

    Once that hawk has landed, he becomes a little clumsy because his weapons are all geared for attacking from the sky against relatively helpless prey. Roosters spend their time on the ground, fighting other roosters.

    I think that pound for pound my money's on the rooster.

    This reminds me of the thing where the Romans used to pit lions against tigers at the Colosseum. They stopped doing that after awhile, because the tigers ALWAYS won.

    In the hawk v rooster incident, it should be noted that the hawk was on one of the hens, and the rooster therefore had the element of surprise in his favor.
