Just spoke with a friend in the USA. This beautiful hawk was poisoned by rodentic pesticides to kill mice and other ‘so called’ vermin. Yet, people do not realise any animal who gets into contact can die too.
This hawk had been on the ground for over 24 hours (unable to fly) prior to being rescued. Unfortunately, she died in transit. Anything that harms nature has a very serious consequence on our natural habitat.
RIP sweet beauty.
