Red-Tailed Hawk Released into the Wild After Being Shot with Nail Gun

Categories: Animals

Rescuers had trapped the injured hawk in Golden Gate Park on Oct. 21 and nursed it back to health; it spent 10 days recovering at the Milpitas-based Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley before it flew away earlier this morning.

Look at how he's got his mojo back:
