Player threatened in Colombia after kicking owl

BOGOTA - Panamanian international Luis

Moreno said he had been threatened on Tuesday for kicking an
owl, which subsequently died, during a Colombian championship

"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.
