Golfer: Bird Killer?

Filed under: , by: golf clubs showcase

Professional golfer Tripp Isenhour is expected to enter a plea on charges of intentionally killing an endangered hawk after the hawk just wouldn't shut its trapper on the golf course.

Isenhour entered a written plea of not guilty in March. The 40-year-old is charged with animal cruelty and killing a migratory bird. He's accused of hitting a hawk with a golf shot at the Grand Cypress Golf Club in Orlando when the bird's loud chirps interrupted the filming of an instructional video.

"We've all had our eruptions on the golf course, and I'm pretty sure we all will again before we're covered with dirt, but to do it when filming an instructional video. " Really, Tripp? You're filming a video to help people and you get mad enough to kill a bird? That is some deep, rich hatred my friends.

Also, if you're going to kill said bird, I'd avoid Florida at all cost.


The charges carry a combined 14 months in jail and $1,500 in fines.

That is some heavy justice there. In the world we live in today, you can do a lot of shenanigans and not get 14 months in the slammer. I guess when you go after those beautiful creatures you better be ready for the backlash.

Sounds like a perfect time to mention Isenhour's next instructional video -- "How not to kill things people actually care about; a look at rolly pollys, Grandaddy Long Legs and Amy Winehouse."

Nowadays, many golf courses build many bird-friendly infrastructures to invite various birds come to the courses and make nests. They are not only the beautiful scene, but the most helpful assistant in pests-killing. So when tyou swing the ball with your R9 Driver, be careful and don't choose the wrong target.

Taking down birdies, totally acceptable. Throwing down a big eagle, absolutely justified. Killing a hawk, nope, that, sir, is crossing the line.
