Thank God for people like you giving aid to poor defenseless creatures. I hope you catch this person who hurt the hawk and bring him to justice.

I have to say, I have never seen a state riddled with so many notices of abused and tortured animals. Makes me sick.

You PETA jacks need to grow up. Hawks are dangerous and they are PREDATORS. They will kill your cats, dogs, chickens, rabbits, and anything they can get ahold of. This guy did me and all others who are pet owners a huge favor. It is not illegal to kill most Hawks. They are not endangered for the most part and they are certainly not useful for anything but killin, and scavenging. Way to go Hunter.

Actually hawks are federally protected, its illegal to kill them. They are an integral and vital part of a natural foodchain that elliminates rodents and disease spreading vermin. Hawks are not dangerous and if you took proper care of your dog you wont have to worry about them being hawk prey. For a hunter you are an idiot and don't get the natural checks and balances of the prey/predator relationship. Without birds like hawks the state would have to spend tons more money to elliminate vermin populations that hawks keep in check and dump tons more chemicals into an already damaged ecosystem.

When they kill your live stock then it's time to defend your lively hood.

People get so hung up on these things. Hunting has always been in our American culture. There are serious issues to address rather than undermining American freedoms.

Hunting is different than shooting something just to kill it for target practice.

Hawks are not good for anything but killing the pheasant population and rabbit too. I deff think they all should be able to get shot if there was a season id hunt them all day.

It is difficult to watch a hawk swoop in and kill the beautiful songbirds at our feeders. They don't even eat them, just kill them.

All Raptor birds are federally protected and a person could pay a lot money for violating the law, in fact you could get more time in prison for killing an endangered animal than a human being for manslaughter. Crazy world we live in. But here in KY it's illegal as in all of the USA to kill federally protected animals, and believe it or not, not all Kentuckians are stupid, snuff dipping, Mt Dew drinking, cigarette smoking, barefoot poachers. Just some of us are. Not me.
