Thread subject: RTH found with nail through head, ok now...
Name Date Message
martyc35 10/24/11 01:23 pm A juvie RTHawk was spotted in Golden Gate Park with a nail in its head. Rescuers finally caught it (video included), and the hawk managed to dislodge the nail all by itself while enroute to the animal shelter. Seems okay now, but another good reason to teach people the importance of our wonderful birds. LINK

Celeste 10/24/11 04:06 pm Things like this really leave me speechless. I can't understand the satisfaction gain by individuals knowingly hurting wildlife.
Peter 10/26/11 05:36 pm It is hard to imagine that someone could get close enough to this hawk to discharge a nail gun (or to drive a nail through her by hand at close range).

Are we sure this image has not been created or altered just for the drama of it?

The link is from England. Are there any links from this country?

Hmmmm
Peter 10/26/11 05:40 pm Appears to be a real deal. It would be interesting to know how that nail got there IMO!

SF Hawk with nail
martyc35 10/27/11 12:25 am Yes, I shared your skepticism, Peter. Especially about the technicalities of a nail gun. But the hawk was in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, and a lot of people saw it. It occurred to me, since the bird dislodged the nail all by itself, that it didn't really go through its head but was sorta stuck at the back of its mouth and had been picked up with some food or something. I suppose we will never know. Curious.
