Hawk rescued after breaking window

 

Menlo Park police responded to a call of a possible burglary in progress at 4 p.m. Monday when a resident in the 1300 block of Bay Laurel Drive called to report hearing an upstairs window smash and then other noises from an upstairs bedroom.

Officer Burke Bruttig arrived to find that a red-tailed hawk had smashed through a window. Bruttig rescued the stunned bird, which was taken by Peninsula Humane Society personnel for treatment and eventual release.
