The video has since been pulled down under ownership claims by Dell Schanze himself
Here is some of the footage in KSL’s news coverage
Law enforcement posted this on a number of forums:
Can anyone on this forum verify that the recent YouTube video showing Dell Schanze chasing an owl with his PPG was factually shot by and posted by Dell himself? Law enforcement personnel in Utah are checking into this and they need verification that this actually was Dell and that it came from his computer, posted by him, etc. for purposes of prosecution. Contact me directly by e-mail if you can help out with this info: “sargeomatic (at) hotmail.com” Thanks.

This is just sickening. The Powered Paragliding community does NOT condone the abuse of animals in this amazing sport. It’s people like this that will ruin the sport’s reputation for all involved. Dell Schanze of Flat Top Paramotors (the individual abusing this helpless animal) has taken it too far this time. His multiple arrests for dangerous & illegal conduct are one thing, but this takes it to a whole new level. Chasing an animal to the point of exhaustion and then bragging about kicking it borderlines on sociopathic behavior. What kind of person does this? Would you buy a product from someone who thinks this is “wicked” fun? Dell Schanze has NOT been held accountable for this cruel act, and it’s encouraged that you do your part by letting him know this is absolutely NOT OK. Dell Schanze’s publicly listed phone number is 1-800-707-2525. This video isn’t affiliated with the ASPCA, however, they are the leading authority in the prevention of animal abuse and it’s encouraged to contact them regarding Dell Schanze’s actions. Make a difference, get involved.
