Firefighters with Lake County Fire Rescue’s Engine 21 near Eustis caught and rendered aid to a wounded red-tailed hawk on Saturday. Firefighter/Paramedic Kyle Rushton and Firefighter/EMT Jeremy Searcy contacted The Avian Reconditioning Center for Birds of Prey in Apopka, which accepted and assessed the young bird. The hawk, just 10-12 weeks old, was dehydrated and malnourished. It will be rehabilitated and returned to the area where it was found.
