A 15-year-old teenager in Las Vegas fought off a hawk that swooped down and tried to grab her two-pound Yorkshire terrier puppy. Cecilia Celis rescued Lulu outside in the yard on Friday.
“We were inside making tacos, and we hear crying. We just hear them barking and crying, so we are like ‘oh they’re just play fighting’ and a second later, I just look outside,” stated Cecilia. “We see a huge bird fly up, and I yell at the bird ‘get off my dog! Get off my dog.'”
According to Fox13News, the home videos shows the teen rushing out as the hawk already had its talons into the puppy getting ready to take off in flight. Cecilia can be seen hitting the hawk with a pillow several times until the hawk let go. A close-up of the hawk shows straps around its legs – leading the teen to believe the bird may be someone’s pet that escaped.
Fortunately Lulu survived her scary ordeal and did not suffer any serious injuries. The pup is expected to make a complete recovery.
Oh my, the sweetness!
