When a Cooper’s hawk flew into a huge fiberglass warehouse, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Moore responded to assist freeing the hawk.

With the aid of several long nets, a few tries and some luck, Officer Moore and volunteers were able to successfully rescue, hydrate and release the hawk.

Warehouse employees had been worried about the chemicals and fumes inside the warehouse and called FWC to help the trapped Cooper’s hawk.

After several attempts, Officer Moore used a net to safely recover the trapped hawk and Kenny Brown released the healthy hawk after assisting the bird to recover.
