Incase you did not hear, Tripp is a professional golfer, and was filming a television show, "Shoot like a pro," when a hawk that was apparantly 300 yards away (that's three football fields), began squaking. Well, Tripp, being the calm and sound minded person he is, drove a cart closer to the bird, and began hitting balls at it. He continued to miss, so he angrily gave up and went back.
Then, the Hawk, apparantly didn't get the memo about the TPS Reports or the one that you can't land on a golf course when Tripp the Almighty is filming, and came withing 75 yards (three fourths of a football field, mind you), and was once again squaking. Tripp became enraged, and once again began hitting golf balls at the bird. The 6th one apparantly came close to the bird's head, and he was said to have become "very excited that it was so close."
Finally, Tripp hit the bird, which collapsed to the ground and began bleeding from his nose, and later died.
Tripp was quoted as saying he didn't think he could hit it, which is patheticly stupid since he is a professional golfer and can get a ball into a small cup from further distances than that.
Tripp Isenhour, you are a petty, pathetic little man, and you need to be taught a lesson. 14 months in prison and $1,500 is the maximum fine he faces, and that is far from just punishment for such a despicable act. It's a slap on the wrist. I reiterate, you need to be taught a lesson. Maybe you should stand in a fairway while Tiger Woods tries to hit you with his driver, or stand on a pitchers mound while David Wright hits line drives at you and gets excited when one gets close, or stand in a batters box without a helmet while Justin Verlander throws nothing but heaters at your head just because you were talking.
He needs a lesson, and if it was legal, heck, forget legal, if I had the chance, I would be more than happy to oblige! Once again, and I say this with a smile, I would be MORE than happy to oblige!
