TOLLAND, Conn. (WTNH) — A brand new State Trooper jumped into action this Labor Day weekend. The Trooper Trainee saved an injured Red-tailed Hawk in Tolland.
Troop C in Tolland shared the rescue on Facebook.
They say Trooper Trainee Kyle Blicharz found the bird on the median of I-84 in Vernon. They brought the hawk to “Horizon Wings” in Ashford so it can recover from its injuries.
Trooper Blicharz has only been on the job for about a week after graduating from the academy last month.
