Hawk with arrow

OK, this is getting rediculous. After last week's story about the ibis with an arrow in it, now comes this news of a Red-tailed Hawk with a similar injury here in Pennsylvania. What kind of poor blighted soul would get enjoyment out of shooting at a big bird with a target arrow? Hope they can catch the bird...if only to get finger prints off that arrow!

Update: The bird has been captured and is doing well in rehab (see story here)

Sadly, we used to get rescues like this at our wildlife rehab all the time. We got a hawk once who'd been shot at least twice; he had so much buckshot that I'm still amazed he recovered (although he's a permanent resident at the rehab now...).

I don't know who'd do it, but apparently there are a lot of them. Kinda makes you question our status as a "higher" life form.
