I'm mildly concerned that Randall may see this, knowing his ... preoccupation ... with velociraptors; however, I thought it was worth pointing out:
A couple of paragraphs down, it points out natural predators: "Threats to the sand cat include humans, wolves, snakes, and raptors". Now at some point, to minimize the panic that would happen should we all realize they are back, some thoughtful editor linked the word "raptors" to the wikipedia article on birds of prey.
But I think we all know what they meant.
Not that I'm sure why the article needed to include them, since raptors are the natural predators to just about everything...
