An injured cooper’s hawk was rescued from near a hiking trail today thanks to Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality bylaw officer Jim Woodrow and Sun Peaks Resort LLP patrollers.
Hikers called patrol dispatch to report the bird and patrol and bylaw worked together to capture and transport the animal. The bird was taken to patrol’s clinic where a local animal health technologist helped wrapped its injured limb so it could be taken to the Fawcett Family Wildlife Health Centre at the B.C. Wildlife Park in Kamloops.
Once treated the hawk will be released where it was found.
