In Santa Cruz, California a hawk has been spotted with a glue trap stuck to its body. According to Wildlife  Emergency Services, the bird is at risk of becoming entangled or not being able to fly.

The red shouldered hawk’s face, right side wing and its right side talon appeared to be completely stuck in the trap. Good Samaritans tried to help the bird which was found near Fern Street.

The hawk is able to fly, but the trap remains stuck to it. At this time, the public’s help is needed to help find the bird so that wildlife staffers can help.

At this time the hawk is not able to hunt and her life is at risk.

“The bird is probably within two to four blocks of Fern Street in Santa Cruz. People should not be using glue traps really anyway, but they shouldn’t be using glue traps outside ever,” the wildlife organization stated.

Anyone spotting the hawk is asked to contact rebecca@wildlifeservices.org with the exact time and location. Please share and help this innocent victim survive.
