Hawks Terrorize Florida Neighborhood

 (WFLA) A very aggressive hawk is trapping residents of one Riverview, Florida community inside their homes.

If they step outside, they risk an attack that can draw blood. The red-tailed hawk is a protected species so removing the nest is mostly out of the question.

Anna Maria Johnson has battle wounds from one attack. Sara Barfield also felt the hawk’s wrath. She now scurries back to safety quickly when she goes outside.
