Reddit user lensoo was recently sent a photo from his captain friend whose plane became filled to the brim with birds of prey after a Saudi prince decided they should travel in style.

"My captain friend sent me this photo. Saudi prince bought ticket for his 80 hawks."

Sadly, none of the hawks got a window seat.

I guess he doesn't know birds can fly.

Immediately, everyone in the comments section of reddit screamed that this couldn't be real, but Lensoo says he was sent other pictures and swears this is very real. Honestly, it's just so strange that we're inclined to believe him.

And for the ornithologists out there, you're right. These aren't hawks, they're falcons. Apparently, either lensoo and his captain friend don't know their raptors, or nobody bothered to list their exact species on the flight manifest.

You know this world is getting crazy when 80 known predators are allowed to fly but human refugees cannot.
