LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) _ A mini golf course in Laramie is once again doing business after aggressive hawks caused a temporary closure.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1MsohYf) Lisa Poledna put a sign reading “closed due to angry hawk” outside her business, Oasis Golf, when parents of at least two nesting baby hawks became aggressively protective.
She says in her 10 years of owning the course, hawks have never been so aggressive that she has to hide from the dive-bombing birds.
The course is open now that the babies are older and their parents are less protective.
Wyoming Game and Fish Laramie regional wildlife coordinator Corey Class says the parents probably didn’t know they’d picked such a crowded nesting spot, and that Poledna just has to wait them out.
