Rescue Group Searches for Hawk

A Rescue Group has been searching for a hawk in San Francisco. This Hawk is so important because it has a nail stuck in its head. When researchers saw the hawk, they saw that it had been shot by a nail gun intentionally. They also noticed it had a lot of pain. It was having trouble eating a squirrel, which is supposed to be easy. The rescuers have set traps to catch the bird. The hawk is protected because of the law, and consequences are 6 months in jail, with a $15,000 fine. If you see the Red-tailed Hawk with the nail in its head, contact the WildRescue at 831-429-2323 or at rescue@wildrescue.org. They are also offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the man who shot the bird, and conviction of whoever harmed the bird. Be sure to keep an eye out for it. It may just have chance to survive.
