Missing Hawk Returns After Nine Years
A HAWK reported lost nine years ago has been reunited with his Stratford owner.
Jarvis, a Harris hawk went missing in Great Alne in 1997 while Stratford falconer Steve Wright was hunting with him.

How can one of God's wild creatures, living in the wild, be "missing" from a human? People assume wild animals want to be pets, even when they run (fly) away from their captors and live well for nine years....?

In the UK, falconers develop close relationships with their raptors. The system is very different than it is here. There are captive-bred raptors made available to falconers who raise them as working animals. Falconers are important in many parts of the UK for control of rodents and to keep crows from pecking the eyes out of newborn lambs. It is something that we don't see here. They aren't really pets but they aren't entirely wild. You have to see it to understand it.
