Falcon hit by a lorry seconds after being released by TV presenters

If you cried at Kes, you’re going to have a hard time watching this video.

In what could very well be one of the saddest animal - but nonetheless surprising - videos we’ve ever posted on ShortList.com, here’s footage of a falcon being hit by a lorry seconds after being released for a segment on Danish TV station DR.

Let off by his owner, no sooner has this magnificent bird of prey taken to the skies that it decides to swoop right onto a motorway where it’s promptly hit by a haulage lorry travelling at high speed; the almighty thwack audible for everyone to hear. If it's not a hoax, it's utterly heart-breaking.

Making it doubly awkward for the presenters, the owner just stands there, dumfounded, unresponsive. It only gets more uncomfortable when the crew present him with the carcass of his dead bird.

We’re not laughing. We coughed.
