Injured Red-tailed Hawk to Soar Once Again
MILWAUKEE –Celebrate freedom with the Wisconsin Humane Society Wildlife Rehabilitation Center staff as they release a Red-tailed Hawk. Pam was admitted to the WHS Wildlife Hospital on September 20 after accidentally colliding with a bus in Oak Creek. The distraught bus driver recruited coworkers to help capture the injured hawk and bring her to the WHS Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
The wildlife team treated the injured hawk with an electrolyte, glucose and water solution to combat dehydration and keep her from going into shock. Pam suffered some internal injuries and tendon damage in one leg. After three weeks of top-notch care, Pam is ready to take flight!
The caring bus driver and her colleagues at Bechtel Construction in Oak Creek have been collecting donations to help with Pam’s care at WHS.
