    Shock ! Horror!

    here is the article:


    "********, two, was with his mother ****** in Farnborough, Hampshire, when the bird of prey attacked him after its teenage handler lost control. The Harris Eagle, with a 4ft wingspan and razor-sharp teeth and claws, tore at his face close to his eyes and ripped at his ear, which had to be glued together in hospital.

    There were so many comments about the inaccuracy of the article that I'm sure it has been corrected by now! :)

    Nah!

    The article on the main page still says EAGLE and TEETH! :)

    Once you click on the story then it has been corrected!

    My dad , once kept a dozen hens. I was always on the lookout for hens teeth as they are extremely valuable. I assume eagle's teeth will be even more valuable. ;)
