Falken-Attacke
PIC BY DANIEL MILLER / UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO / CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED One of the falcons attacks the camera) - This is the terrifying moment a group of conservationists were attacked by a group of furious falcons - as they tried to tag their young. In a scene that could have come straight from the famous Hitchcock film The Birds, university researchers are forced to defend themselves with wooden shields as the birds swoop down at them, talons bared. The hairy moment was caught on head cameras worn by the team, as they tried to track the young birds at Toledo University, Ohio. Experts at the university removed the chicks from the nests, on the universitys premises, for approximately 45 minutes, in a bid to take blood samples, checking for the presence of toxic chemicals, weigh each one, and clamp them with an ID band. But the angry parents were clearly furious that their nests were being targeted - and the staff from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife were forced to turn out well prepared for attack.
