Handling Threats

Kiska’s role as Chief of Security includes handling threats quickly and efficiently. She impresses the Little Prince, too.

Threat spied in the lower field.

The ever present crows represent a minor, though annoying issue. Still, Kiska focuses her icy look on them to communicate her displeasure.

Your squawking annoys me. Go away! handling threats

Your squawking annoys me. Go away!

The birds wisely depart rather than risk the wrath. The Queen arrives for her security update and receives the good news.

Squawker squelched, Your Highness.

Of course, the crows are not the only recipients of that withering look. Anyone who has been subjected to that glare understands and respects it.

Don't blame you, crows. I get that look for violating the speed limit and bouncing in a quiet zone.

    Mom sez: Kiska’s look, with those just slightly squinted eyes, should be enough to stop ANYTHING in their tracks. And she has it down to a science! Good work, Kiska!
