Jesus Chr*st, this is truly awful:

West Precinct detectives and the Seattle Animal Shelter are investigating a man for possible animal cruelty charges after he was caught strangling a hawk Monday in a downtown park. The hawk was so seriously injured that it had to be euthanized.

Around 4 pm on October 1st, officers went to Victor Steinbrueck Park, near the Pike Place Market, after receiving a report about a man harming a bird.

I would like to remind all you voters out there that, unlike my opponent, I am pro-life and do not—in any way, shape, or form—condone hawk strangling. I repeat: This is simply not part of my platform.
