Popular Post Dempsy's Mom Posted August 4, 2016 Popular Post Share Posted August 4, 2016 (edited) Yesterday morning Dempsy and I were spraying weeds again with the Gator. On our way back home there was a hawk in the middle of the gravel road. "Keep going mom, he'll fly away!", Demps said. But the hawk didn't fly. He waddled over to the side of the road. "Oh. Demps, I think the hawk is hurt. Let's help him." We had a towel that we used to wipe off the morning dew from the seat. Dempsy watched as I approached the little hawk. I gently laid the towel over him. He was quite calm. Gathered him up and took him home with us. Once home, we took him inside - where I put on some leather gloves and examined him. His claws were powerful and his bite strong. He had a broken wing right at the elbow. It was healed. Looked up wildlife rescues on the internet - nothing in SD. So I decided to try the local zoo. Yes, they would take him. Dempsy and I introduced him to Elsie. I put him in the outside dog kennel for the night. He ate a sardine and later some steak. This morning he went to his forever home at the Watertown Zoo. The man said he would never fly again, but he will live out his life at the zoo.
