Hawk injured in I-205 accident

Hawk injured in I-205 accident

Wednesday morning, West Linn Police officers were called to the Willamette Falls Viewpoint on I-205 northbound after a semi-truck hit a hawk.

Officers untangled the injured raptor from the passenger view mirror. It appeared to officers that the hawk suffered an injury to it left wing and was shaken by it's brush with the semi. The Audobon Society responded very quickly and took the bird to care for it's injuries.

The Audubon Society of Portland's Wildlife Care Manager says the bird's prognosis is "iffy."
