NORTH WEST BROOK, N.L.—People near a community on the east coast of Newfoundland and Labrador have been taking some heat from a protective mother hawk.
Several people have been attacked, suffering cuts to their heads and hands, near a walking trail in the North West Brook area.
A sign has been put up to warn people of the potential danger.
One woman from North West Brook said the hawk swooped down and attacked her while she was out for a walk Saturday evening.
Dennis Baker said the same hawk came at him from behind last week—cutting his head and hands.
Wildlife officers found a nest in the area and expect the eggs to hatch soon.
