Help find hawk stuck to mouse trap 01-15-20 03:05 DC

Rescuers say a hawk seen in Santa Cruz with a glue trap for mice stuck to its body is in danger this morning. The red-shouldered hawk was seen Tuesday morning near Fern Street in Santa Cruz.

Rebecca Dmytryk (Da-MIT-TRIK) of Wildlife  Emergency Services said that although the bird can fly it is in danger of becoming entangled or losing its ability to thermo-regulate.

If not captured, the hawk could die as soon as today.

Dmytryk said the bird is likely still near Fern Street in Santa Cruz where it was spotted Tuesday.
