There was a particularly gruesome moment when the same snowy owl that played Hedwig in the Harry Potter films swooped over the (sadly sparse) gymnasium crowd to messily devour a dead mouse. A lot of these birds are in movies, it seems—the MC and head raptor-handler for the evening mentioned that he had trained Mordecai from The Royal Tenenbaums, only to then remark that the falcon had passed away years ago. This after describing why a vulture’s head was small and bald: “so he can stick it inside a skeleton or rotting carcass and not get stuck.” That’s right, NOTHING IS SUGARCOATED AT THE EXTREME RAPTORS SHOW.
