According to a May 12 Facebook post from Richmond Animal Care and Control, Officer Leech received a call requesting assistance for a baby hawk that fell out of its home. Leech found the bird in good condition and located its nest. Unfortunately, the baby hawk's nest was 60 feet up a tree, so the officer couldn't return the bird alone. This is where the Richmond Department of Public Utilities steps in, according to the post. Bear Has to Be Rescued After Getting Trapped at a Calif.
