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.

I don't hate hawks or owls any more than any of God's other creatures, as long as they leave me and my pet alone, "live and let live". But the hawk or owl that tries on my minpin has become a threat, and NO ONE, I DGAS WHO IT IS, is going to tell me not to use whatever force is necessary to defend the little guy. I can understand prosecuting those who actually TARGET these birds, but let's say another pet owner defends his Chihuahua from a RTH or GHO by dropping it with 12 guage #7 birdshot, and I see it? I DIDN'T SEE NOTHIN'!

It is easy to shoot a red tailed or ant other hawk when my poodle was taken and killed by a red tailed hawk right in my own fenced back yard. These things are killers of cats dogs and mourning doves which live in my back yard. I haven't killed any but I certainly could easily.

Your poodle must have been a tea cup sized one since no red tail hawk can fly away with anything weighing over 3lbs.
Hey how about your precious kitty cat,do you have it trained not to kill mourning DOVES?

You stupid people to kill a hawk. Hawk will find you when your sleeping and ask reason, better be better then the stuff your writing here. You wear the blood of what you kill, ask a rabbi about wearing blood they wear mine. Austin, TX Oct 1982 Rabbi Moshe Traxler, Lubivich cursed forever.

ACTUALLY, hawks are NOT federally protected if you obtain a Federal permit, after trying every other way to alleviate the problem....ex, scare away with horn blasts etc. If you have a legitimate reason such as protecting your livestock you can trap or KILL the hawk(s). Homeowners pay a $50 fee and explain the problem in detail. A federal agent will check your info and issue a permit if it is deemed necessary, and prudent to do so. I realize some of you may disagree ....but guess what?....I bet you do not have chickens....do you? Or a small animal in your backyard? Once a hawk realizes that the animal(s) are his for the taking it will kill EVERY one of them that it is allowed to. This is a FACT....ask any farmer. I do not enjoy killing any animal, but in defense of your livestock, that is a DIFFERENT story altogether.
