Hawk with Nail in Head Captured

By October 23, 2011

Follow me on:

After a week of attempting to capture a red-tailed hawk that had been shot in the head by a nail gun, California wildlife rehabilitators announced on Saturday that the bird was successfully captured. The nail dropped out while the bird was being transported to the wildlife rehabilitation facility.

Rehabilitators said the hawk is recovering well at WildRescue, a nonprofit rescue group in Monterey, California.

A reward of $10,000 has been offered for information leading to the conviction of the person responsible for injuring the hawk. Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, injury of a red-tailed hawk can be punishable by six months in prison and fines up to $15,000.
