Hawks are known for their majesty and grace, but one injured hawk was in a place without either of those things on Tuesday morning — on the ground at the 95th Street entrance to the West Side Highway.
Drivers called the police about it, and officers from the 24th precinct came out to rescue it and take it to an animal hospital. They named it ‘Lucky’, according to the Post.
Earlier today, @NYPD24Pct Sector A’s PO Sayago & PO Castro were responding to a 911 call of an injured hawk🪶 off the Henry Hudson Parkway. With the help of additional officers, they were able to bring the hawk to safety. Great work by everyone involved👏❗️ pic.twitter.com/2bu2A7RNOU
