Hawk havoc! Man stunned by red-tailed hawk smashing through his bedroom window and causing mayhem
These are the earth-shattering pictures of a red-tailed hawk after it flew through a man’s bedroom window and coated his bedroom with bird poo.
Drew Arnold, the 23-year-old from Kansas City, initially thought he was being robbed and feared an intruder had broken in, only to find a stunned hawk staring back at him.
He found the hawk, famed for its four-foot wingspan and two-inch talons, with a frightened look of confusion as it looked around Drew’s bedroom.
The hawk spent the next 45 minutes knocking pictures off the wall, breaking the ceiling fan, ripping up the curtains, clawing the woodwork near two windows and coating the room with hawk poo.
To add insult to injury, the bird even knocked over a basket of freshly folded laundry.
The hawk didn’t peck or claw at the animal control expert, who arrived 45 minutes later, but he did puff up a few times in an effort to intimidate.
At one point it looked more like the bird was proudly posing after his rampage as he posed with a mischievous smile.
Drew said: “It was pretty scary at first, but then I thought it was funny. I’m one of those guys who finds the humour in absolutely everything, no matter how bad the situation.”
The hawk, estimated to be 2 or 3 years old, was treated for leg injuries and three missing tail feathers and is expected to be released back into the wilds of suburban Kansas City.
