The hawk that spent a week trapped inside the Andrew stop on the Red Line is scheduled to be released into the wild today, the Wildlife Clinic at Tufts's Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine reports.
A team of faculty, intern and staff veterinarians and fourth-year veterinary students examined the bird shortly after it was brought to Tufts Monday by the Animal Rescue League of Boston, and radiographs were taken on Tuesday. The bird suffered no broken bones and was treated for a minor abrasion on its wing.
"The Cooper's Hawk was brought to us in shock and dehydrated from living in the MBTA station, but was otherwise healthy," said Dr. Florina Tseng, DVM, director of the Tufts Wildlife Clinic. "So often we see birds of prey that are far worse off."
