Hawk caught on barbed wire


Last night we were forwarded a call from our local shelter about a hawk caught on a barbed wire fence in La Selva Beach. 

WES' founder and director responded to find a red-tailed hawk tangled in a fence, caught by one of the barbs.

The reporting party, a couple who lived next door, assisted in the rescue. Check out the video:



The bird was transported to Native Animal Rescue where it is expected to make a full recovery.

UPDATE: 2-3-2016

Thanks to the great care the hawk received at Native Animal Rescue, it was released back to where it was found today. Many thanks to the Miles Family for helping with transportation. Check out the video:
