Table Mesa Hawk Rescue

While on the way out to go wheeling at Table Mesa, this videographer saw a hawk fly across the road in front of him, and noticed she was covered in chollas and not flying very well.

It landed on the other side of the road, and our cameraman was able to cover it with his jacket and grab it safely, before taking it over to the truck and removing as much of the chollas as he could.

For those that haven't experienced chollas they are covered in barbed thorns and are difficult to remove without a comb or tool do some sort. Looks to be a female juvenile red tail hawk.
