Hawk rescued in the Boston subway

The Animal Rescue League of Boston has been busy in the past few weeks, rescuing dogs, a coyote, and now a hawk stuck in the Boston Metro.

On Wednesday February 9 at around 7 p.m., Environmental Police called the Animal Rescue League of Boston about a hawk seen clinging to a net in Jamaica Plain's Jackson Square Metro stop, according to The net was an anti-pigeon nesting device.

"[The hawk] is stable and not injured," Alan Borgal, director of the Center for Animal Protection at the Animal Rescue League, told the news source.

The hawk is now at the Tufts Wildlife Center in Grafton and is expected to be released into the wild soon, according to WDHD TV.

Earlier in February, a stranded coyote was rescued from the frozen Charles River by the Boston Animal Rescue League, and a dog was similarly saved from icy waters in mid-January.

Boston,along with much of the Northeast, has experienced severe weather and cold temperatures this winter. Reuters reports that snow accumulation in Boston mounted to more than 71 inches this year, compared to the usual 23 inches of snow.
