Paramotorists claim 'Super Dell' chased, kicked bird in flight

on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 

UPDATE:
The video was removed from youtube this afternoon with a note on the video claiming:

THIS VIDEO IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE DUE TO A COPYRIGHT CLAIM BY DELL SCHANZE

Here is a screenshot that was still available:

"Not-so-super Dell's foot and a Barn Owl he attacked."

I posted this to the UBIRD listserv last night, but wanted to have it reach a broader audience.  This was on KSL.com last night, and has been all over the local news the last 24 hours. Dale Shanze is a failed businessman, humiliated wannabe politician, gun-nut, and pretty mush just a despicable human being.  If the previously mentioned things weren't obvious enough check out the video below that surfaced this week of him chasing a Barn Owl for over 7 minutes in his para-motor-whatever-the-hell-this-contraption-is.

Since the youtube video was pulled I am now linking to the KSL video:



Aside from this, he was previously seen chasing gulls along the south shore of the Great Salt Lake, and last year I watched as he chased hawks around at Point of the Mountain.

I hope this ape gets what's coming and slapped with a fine, and jail time.
