Small Sputnik spares ‘bullet’ bird.

(By the rules of ethnic mockery, my Russian lineage allows me to assume a fake, though accurate, Russian accent for this video intro.)


Himalayan snow vulture shoots like bullet into ropes of Soviet paraglider, disable-ink chute. Glider falls hard, crashink through lot of branches on way to earth. Good for him Mother Russia raises glider prepared; packink back-up chutes. Man from other country would have crapped pants. Man from other country would be suckink thumb on mountainside, cryink like baby. Soviet glider is strong.

In the end, Soviet glider is also kind; allowink vulture to return to native habitat, berate-ink bird only a little, to show who is peasant.
