Red Tail Hawk Causes Traffic Squawk
An injured red tail hawk caused quite a commotion early Friday afternoon on Harvey Road near the Rocky Top Market. The bird was in the street with an injured wing as cars swerved to avoid it. A lot of people got out of their vehicles and tried to help out. Finally, a woman was able to capture it and keep it in her car until an officer from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control Unit arrived and transported it to the U.T. Veterinary Hospital. It’s undergoing treatment at this time.
