Hawk Rescued After Being Stuck On Texas Car Grille

GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) - A Dallas-area mechanic had a special wildlife assignment when he saved a hawk that was stuck in the grille of a car.

Matt Whitehead, who's a mechanic at Park Place Lexus in Grapevine, says he thought the red-tailed hawk was dead until the animal blinked.

WFAA-TV reports a driver on Saturday stopped by the dealership to say he was traveling more than 60 mph when the bird flew into the front of his car.

Whitehead managed to extricate the hawk by breaking apart the grille. The bird could flap its wings, but not fly.

Whitehead took the injured creature to veterinarian Greg Moore, who said Monday he's monitoring the animal and is optimistic that the hawk will recover from a concussion and internal injuries.
