Let me take that bird off your hands

Two puppeteers in Atlanta have learned that there's such a thing as too much realism.

Jeff Domke and Alan Louis were in the parking lot of the Center for Puppetry Arts, taking photos of a new, authentic-looking puppet of a bird, when a red-tailed hawk swooped down and attacked them.

Domke said the hawk hit his head and hand before realizing the bird puppet was fake and flying away. No one was seriously injured.

The puppeteers said they took the attack as a "compliment."
