Most people don't associate hunting ferocity with dachshunds. But the rabbits and woodchucks of suburban New Jersey can tell you different. During the falconry season in late autumn and winter, Teddy Moritz, a falconer from Mahwah, N.J., and a leading authority on hunting dachshunds, flies her Harris's hawk, Buckshot, over a team of three miniature long-haired dachshunds. The dachshunds flush pheasants, rabbits and hares, and the hawk joins in to make the kill. But in the off-season, Moritz's houndsÃƒÂher dachshunds teamed with a larger houndÃƒÂtake down woodchucks for farmers in central New Jersey. Moritz feeds the quarry to the dogs. Imagine that scene: a gang of dachshunds scarfing down fresh woodchuck.
