We are excited to share this beautiful red-tailed hawk release at Hawley Park behind the White Lake Township Police station. This hawk was brought to us by some amazing officers in October after being hit by a car. Thanks to these officers who went beyond the call of duty to care for an animal in need, this hawk received a second chance in the wild! Help us thank them by commenting below!
