Hawk snags drone

Stuart Crime Watch Board member Sally Franklin noticed something strange in a tree while she was sipping her morning coffee.

  Sally saw a Hawk holding a strange object. The hawk dropped the suspicious item and flew away.

Sally picked up the item and discovered that the hawk was carrying a drone.  She called police and reported the suspicious incident.

After a brief investigation, the owner of the drone was located nearby.

Hawks have been known to pick up all kinds of things including small animals.

Here is a great blog by Hawks Aloft.

All raptors are carnivorous and eat only meat. Different families of raptors catch and consume a variety of prey so apparently it knew the drone wouldn’t taste very good.
