BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - A disabled red-tailed hawk is back at a Bloomington shelter for injured wildlife after several days on the lam.

WildCare spokeswoman Amanda Wrigley says the 3-year-old hawk named Kenna had likely not eaten for days and had lost weight, but was otherwise fine.

Kenna escaped on Saturday as she was being taken into a building after spending time outside with trainers. The hawk was spotted flying low in a Bloomington neighborhood, and was caught Wednesday by volunteers who coaxed her down from a tree by offering her a rat to eat.

Wrigley tells The Herald-Times (https://bit.ly/1gJ8Ix3 ) that Kenna can’t fly well because of wing damage and couldn’t have survived on her own. Wrigley says Kenna will soon return to taking part in programs teaching children and others about raptors.
