Richmond Wildlife Center searching for person who …
Turkey may be the main bird on people’s minds on a typical Thanksgiving, but the Richmond Wildlife Center is asking for the community to turn their attention towards a different type of bird this year.
On Wednesday, Nov. 23, the state’s biologist received a call from a citizen who spotted a hawk with an arrow protruding from its body along Old Gun and Cherokee Roads. The hawk took off before representatives from the local wildlife center could make the rescue. Melissa Stanley with the Richmond Wildlife Center emphasized the importance of finding the bird — and the arrow.
“The last person to touch that arrow was the person who loaded the bow,” Stanley said.
