Could be a war brewing. As Putin is a known shortwinger.

He's thinking "you fool it probably came from Russia in the first place..."

In looking at this press release from other sources it turns out that the thread title is incorrect. The gift was from Putin to Sheik Tamim.

So sure a wild gyr - Russia has plenty. Plus a long history of providing gyrfalcons as gifts.

Makes more sense than Nuking them and more environmentally friendly.
