A North Texas police officer found and rescued a wounded hawk in the road in Carrollton, Texas.
The Carrollton police officer found the hawk sitting in the road with an injured wing on Aug. 12.

The hawk is now at the The Blackland Prairie Raptor Center.
Every workplace needs a good outdoorsman. Ours is Officer Tatom.
