Wildlife Patients In Care: Red-tailed Hawk

Red-tailed-Hawk-102565-in-ward-cage-101610-KM-(3)---cc Red-tailed-Hawk-102565-in-ward-cage-101610-KM-(2)---cc On October 10, a man in Burien, WA found this Red-tailed Hawk stuck under a safety net on his trampoline. The bird was very disheveled from his attempts to break free, and he had clearly suffered serious injuries.

The hawk was admitted to PAWS Wildlife Center and the veterinary staff determined that the bird had fractured one of his legs. We splinted the bird's leg and after several days the bone began to heal.

The splint has now been removed, and the bird is being housed in an outdoor cage while he completes the healing process.
