Did anyone read this blog post and look at the pictures of the owl pellet with the female cooper's hawk talon? Can you imagine an owl managing that?

My mind was jumping all over the place. Though I had already figured out whose pellet it was, I was mos def going to figure out whose foot it was. I tried to imagine any owl gagging down the entire needle-taloned foot of a raptor.
