"What and the hell do you do when a freaking raptor bites you? I know you have to wear welding gloves to hold the damn things already.. but geez. Pain."
My uncle kept harris hawks which are stronger and bigger than falcons, one of his hawks once landed on the hand without the glove. The bird was tame as a budgie, not aggressive at all and his talons went through the hand and emerged at the other side. He has massive scars and was very lucky not to lose the use of his hand. I can no longer be around a bird of prey without flinching every time they move.
