MISSING A PET? KITTEN SURVIVES HAWK ATTACK; OWNER SOUGHT

May 5, 2011 (Harbison Canyon) – “A kitten that looks very much like the pic I have attached (our 8 week old kitten) was picked up by a hawk and dropped in the road on Harbison Canyon right down the street from Shadow Hills Elementary,” Kelly Vitek said in a post on the Blossom Valley Network community forum. According to her report, the incident was witnessed by three people, including Vitek’s husband.

 

“He said the kitten was freaked out but was alive and moving,” she added.
