Hawk Tangled In Fishing Line

Posted on May 6, 2019

On May 4th, The Long Valley Fire Company, Long Valley EMS Rescue and Morris County Park Police responded to Patriots' Path in Long Valley for an animal rescue. A hiker had found a Red-Tailed Hawk caught between two pieces of fishing line hanging between two trees above the river. Park Police officers, Fire Fighters and Rescue Services members worked out a plan to remove the hawk as safely as possible. Some ladder work, minor rope rigging, hand tools, battery operated reciprocating saws and an ingenious "flare on a pike pole"- (used to melt some hard to reach fishing line) were all used to release the injured hawk. The Hawk was transferred to a volunteer from “The Raptor Trust” with hopes of a speedy recovery.
