Another hawk, possibly a mate, came to the injured bird's defense, not letting Fordham workers near it.
Officers from the NYPD's Emergency Services Unit arrived and scooped up the injured hawk.
The hurt bird was taken to the city's Animal Care and Control for evaluation and possible rehabilitation.
Fordham University has already posted a blog on the incident on their Web site: Fordhamnotes.blogspot.com
