From The Onion (a humorous news publication):
Only a few short years after being removed from the endangered species list, the American peregrine falcon—once considered a creature of nobility and grace—has transformed into an "unappreciative jerk," wildlife experts reported Monday.
According to workers at the Peregrine Fund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting falcons around the world, the predatory bird has exhibited a complete change in attitude since its resurgence. Animal advocates have reportedly observed the falcon flaunting its magnificent 3.5-foot wingspan, nesting arrogantly atop nearby cliffs, and generally acting like "king shit" wherever it goes.
"For decades, the peregrine falcon faced a very real and very serious threat," U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service deputy director Rowan Gould said. "There was a time when many of us feared we would never see this majestic creature again, when we did everything in our power to ensure that this marvel of nature would be around for generations to come."
Added Gould, "If only we'd known then what cocky little pricks they'd turn out to be."
In addition, the blue-gray member of the Falconiformes order has put off dozens of its once-ardent protectors by reportedly just sitting there like it was invincible and never on the brink of extinction or something.
And that's about as much of the article I can post here in the blog. Read the rest at The Onion...just maybe not out loud to your kids.
