ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- PGA tour golfer Tripp Isenhour is charged in Orlando with killing a protected migratory hawk with a golf shot.
It occurred in December when Isenhour was filming a video segment for the television show "Shoot Like A Pro."
Prosecutors say a red-shouldered hawk was making noise, forcing a video crew to film another take. The hawk moved closer, and the golfer hit several balls at it.
A witness says the bird fell to the ground, bleeding from both nostrils.
The 39-year-old golfer, whose real name is John Henry Isenhour III, is charged with cruelty to animals and killing a migratory bird.
