"And Duncan's horses...Turned wild in nature, broke their stalls, flung out, contending 'gainst obedience, as they would make war with mankind." This happens as a result of Macbeth killing Duncan. As all of the supernatural things happen, Duncan's old horses start to eat each other. Ross explained the horses as calm and "beauteous and swift" making it more shocking that this occurred. This can also be an example of symbolism because by killing Duncan Macbeth killed one of his own, and by the horses eating each other they harming their own kind.
"A falcon, tow'ring in her pride of place, Was by a mousing owl hawked at and killed." This is another example of supernatural things happening in the world as a result of Macbeth killing Duncan. Usually the owls are the predators and falcons are also predators, but in this case the owl makes the falcon its prey and attacks it. Two like entities are attacking each other. This is just like Macbeth killing Duncan, by killing Duncan Macbeth killed someone alike him in many ways.
