Bird Poop: Red-tailed hawk succumbs to its wounds

December 28, 2010

On call during the first weekend of December, the officer had gone to pick up a large hawk during the afternoon. After securing the raptor in his truck, he drove back to the shelter. The opportunity to handle such a bird reminded him of his days at the San Antonio zoo and other facilities.

After notifying the game warden, the officer was given our number to call. Since Odessa’s animal control was officially closed, we arranged to meet on Sunday morning.
