BOGOTA - Panamanian international Luis Moreno said he had been threatened on Tuesday for kicking an owl, which subsequently died, during a Colombian championship match.




"There have been all kinds of things...... on the telephone, everything," the Pereira player said in a television interview. "It wasn't my intention to hurt the animal."




Moreno caused an uproar by trying to kick the stricken bird -- which had just been injured after being hit by the ball -- into touch during the 2-1 defeat at Atletico Junior on Sunday.
