Entrapped Red-Shouldered Hawk RESCUED

It was first discovered Thursday - a young red shouldered hawk trapped inside a firetruck bay.

WildRescue was alerted Friday afternoon. On Saturday, one of our capture teams tried unsuccessfully to lure the bird to a trap. Finally, Sunday, the bird was captured and transported by WildRescue to Peninsula Humane Society.
After a couple of days under observation and treatment for dehydration, a WildRescue responder drove the hawk back to Half Moon Bay where it as released by Firefighter Bob. Check out the video below.

A huge Thank You! to PHS Wildlife Center staff for their quick and expert care of the hawk!
