RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- Richmonders stopped and stared at an unexpected wildlife exhibit downtown. An injured Red-Tailed Hawk sat idly next to the intersection of 3rd and Marshall streets.

Lori Wranitz first noticed the bird while on a stroll. She said she became concerned when she approached the bird and it didn't react.

"We just walked down the sidewalk and we saw he didn't fly away,” Wranitz said. "He looks like he probably can't fly and I don't want him to get hit by a car."

Wranitz called 911 shortly after.

Richmond Animal Care and Control responded, picked up the bird and wrapped it in a coat before taking it off the streets. A representative from the Wildlife Center of Virginia came along with the officer from RACC.

"The vet will look at him at the Virginia Wildlife center and see whether or not he can be helped,” she said.

A spokesperson from the Richmond Animal Care and Control told CBS 6 that the Red-Tailed Hawk is being treated at the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro.

The bird is expected to be okay.
