Swooping hawks have West U homeowners wearing bike helmets
A pair of broad-winged hawks has taken residence in a West University family’s backyard and nothing can be done about it at the moment, reports Miya Shay of ABC-13.
The hawks have also attacked other homeowners in the neighborhood, like Allison Laird’s husband who was attacked twice in one day. Laird ended up put netting in her backyard. Not satisfied, Laird called 911, which turned her to Houston Animal Control.
Still not satisfied, Laird called a professional falconer who told her the same thing: It’s breeding season and the hawks are protecting their young. The hawks will remain in the West U neighborhood until the baby hawks can be on their own.
