A lead-poisoned red-tailed hawk walking near Lorimer Street and Lee Avenue was in danger of getting hit by traffic last night around 6 p.m. as a crowd gathered watching officers from the NYPD’s 90th Precinct rescue the wild bird, CBS NY reports.

The hawk was covered in grease and in need of medical attention and is now being treated by the Wild Bird Fund.
