Default Hawk attacks girl on school tour of Fenway

BOSTON -- A student touring Fenway Park was attacked by a resident red-tailed hawk that drew blood from a girl's scalp Thursday.
The girl was taken by ambulance to a hospital but wasn't seriously injured.
The hawk was perched on a railing in the upper deck behind home plate while the group from Memorial Boulevard Middle School in Bristol, Conn., toured the stadium. The hawk flew at the girl and swooped in with its talons extended, scratching her scalp.
A single egg lay in the hawk's nearby nest in an overhang near the stadium's press booth.
The nest and egg were removed at the direction of state wildlife officials.

Heh...at least Yankee Stadium only has Scooter the Squirrel...who hangs out on the foul pole and doesn't attack anybody.
