Chicken hawk injures 2 in Bridgeport
An aggressive chicken hawk caused injuries to two people in Bridgeport in a single day.
One victim was a driver making deliveries. Officials say the hawk landed on his head, causing lacerations.
Shortly after, another man was attacked and suffered cuts to his leg. Both men were taken to a hospital.
The bird was captured Tuesday afternoon by the state environmental police department.
Experts say attacks on humans are rare, but they do occur when a bird feels a nest is threatened.
