Red Tail Hawk stops in Ada for a bite

And several concerned citizens wanted the story

From the Ada police reports: Today Sgt. Donnie Decking responded to a call of an injured hawk. Upon investigation it was discovered that a Red Tail Hawk was simply stopping by Ada to have lunch (a Cooper's Hawk).

The Red Tail Hawk allowed Sgt. Deckling to get within feet of it for an assessment under direction of the department's Wildlife Officer.

Wildlife did respond and the Hawk finished his lunch in quick manner so as not to be captured and all ended well (with exception of the Cooper's Hawk).

We had a number of concerned citizens and we thought you might like an update.
