Would this verb describe scratching?

Makes more sense to me than picturing owls with scissors. =)

I suppose it could be biting or whatever birds do with beaks. I do like the image of Duo with a cleaver, though.

According to this lesson there is already another verb for "to bite" in HV. Beaks can definitely cut as well.

I am imagining owls cutting girls with their sharp wings. This sentence is weird. :p
