Injured red-tailed hawk set free after being rescued by Metro-North conductor in May
A red-tailed hawk was set free months after it was found injured on train tracks by a Metro-North conductor.
Larry Allain was driving a full passenger train near Wilton when he saw a large bird in the tracks, and after examination, realized it was injured.
With the help of the MTA police and the operations center, the hawk was taken to a Weston based non-profit rehabilitation center for birds called Christine's Critters.
Rehab officials at Christine's Critters say the red-tailed hawk broke a bone in its wing, which had to be wrapped in a cast for six to eight weeks.
It was set free earlier this week.
