Last night, a younger bird got caught by Charlie and he was definitely toying with it. He was so proud of himself and I was feeling so bad for the bird. I got him to release it and pulled Charlie into the house. The bird must have been in shock for awhile because he just sat there. The other birds kept swooping anybody who ventured out in the backyard to protect him. He must have recovered, because he was gone about 15 minutes or so after I brought Charlie in. I took Charlie for a walk to distract him and the first thing he wanted to do was look for that bird in the backyard. I know it's in their nature, but I would have been heartbroken if he had actually killed that bird. And I know he would have if I hadn't pulled him into the house. He was just strutting like he was so proud...
