Thank you to those who helped save the life of a hawk

While working as a volunteer at Rahn's Plantfolks Nursery in Port Royal on June 27, I noticed a hawk just outside the back fence. The bird was on the ground and couldn't seem to lift its head off its chest. Ned Rahn, the owner of the nursery, thought the hawk had something lodged in its throat and caught the hawk with a fishing net. After extracting the hawk from the net, he secured it in a large plastic enclosure and called a local Beaufort veterinarian, Bill Sammons.
