A red-tailed hawk is eternally indebted to Connecticut State Police.  In what could have easily been a sad story turned into one heck of a daring rescue.

After receiving dozens of reports of an injured hawk walking along I-91, state police found the little critter wandering around exit 21.

Good news: the bird is okay!

Better news: our state police are secret pun masters

Oh yeah, once that was over, officers had a run-in with a copycat.
