Guy chases down an owl and kicks it for fun.

Local news called him and he ended the call right then and said dont call him again.

SALT LAKE CITY — A video has surfaced that the paragliding community claims is Dell "Super Dell" Schanze chasing and kicking a migratory bird near Utah Lake.

The video, supposedly taken two years ago on the west side of Utah Lake and posted to YouTube April 6, has drawn sharp criticism from the paramotoring community online. The community has responded to the video by petitioning the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Utah Fish and Game, and local law enforcement agencies.

Carl Arky, spokesman for the Humane Society of Utah, said he's apalled by the video.

"(I've) never seen anything like that before in my life," Arky said. "The Humane Society and everyone who supports us condemns this."

Schanze's face is not shown in the video, as the camera appears to be mounted above a head, but the paragliding wing matches that which he has posted online, and a shot of the paramotorist's hand shows a missing left index finger. Schanze lost a part of this finger on a freeway reflector post. Commenters also pointed to Schanze wearing similar clothing, gloves, and boots.

In the seven-minute video, a paramotorist chases a bird — thought to be a hawk or an owl — and kicks the bird twice. A second paramotorist is shown, but does not appear to participate in the abuse.


"There isn't a single person I know, paraglider pilot or otherwise, who thinks it's morally acceptable to treat another animal in this way," wrote FreeFlyingDuck on a paragliding forum.

There is some question as to the production of the video. The source of it is unknown, and the voice at the beginning has no background motor noise.

Schanze declined to comment, and told KSL reporters not to contact him.

Whether or not the person in the video is Schanze, however, the paramotor community is most concerned that government officials will take a "shotgun approach" and ban paramotor flight in the area rather than deal with the individual.

In June 2011, Schanze was charged with an unclassified misdemeanor after jumping from the Astoria Column in Astoria, Oregon. Schanze was found operating a speed glider near the Peter Iredale shipwreck on the coast of Oregon.

The case has been turned over by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to the the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Pretty sick to chase a terrified animal like that then brag about kicking it on video.

Went to school with one. I've seen his missing digit and heard the same story from himself and plenty of others as to how.
He was on the bus, and went to slap or high-five a stop sign. His ring got caught on the bolt on the sign and bye bye finger.

The wheels on the bus go round and round...

OK, am I only the only one that is slightly impressed with the fact that the guy was able to chase down a bird while paragliding and was able to kick it not once, but twice?

Yes, it was a dispicable act, but damn!

Why are they calling an owl a migratory bird? It is a bird of prey.

I have a Hoot. It's pretty much the worst aerobic septic system ever created by an "engineer". If someone were to request it, I may indeed feel obliged to give a hoot, and replace it with something better.

He was flying and chased down a hawk or owl and kicked it?
That sounds like it would be very challenging

I have to see the video before I make a judgement call.

Watching the video, yes he is chasing the bird and could be viewed as molesting it.
Actually contacting the bird with his foot, was not abusive. Not like like he kicked it, just touched it with his foot.

Sorry, I have no "damns" to give. Was it smart to do it, probably not. Was it smart to video it, definitely not, was it smart post it on the net, absolutely not.

The short version caused me to have that reaction, but after I watched the majority of the 7+ minute long version of this dip shit chasing the bird, I think he needs his ass kicked. I would have never thought an owl could flee for that long.
