Bethany Rondeau jogs towards the skirmish and ends the duck’s life quickly, much more quickly than if the raptor were left alone with it. She’s more concerned with the duck’s feelings than the raptor ever would be. It’s just expressing the prehistoric DNA coursing through its veins. Bethany wants to make the death as painless as possible.

Bethany is a master falconer. Along with her husband Justin, they raise, breed, sell, race and hunt with hawks and falcons on the Olympic Peninsula. Together they’re a cannabis- powered, falcon- flying power couple and the youngest falcon breeders in the world.
