NEW YORK (AP) - Public safety officials at St. John’s University in New York say a hawk attacked two people at the school’s Queens campus over a 24 hour period, apparently in an effort to protect a smaller, possibly injured hawk.

Officials say the first attack happened while someone was standing in front of the school’s University Center on Wednesday. The second attack happened Thursday while a person was standing behind St. John’s Hall.

Both were treated for cuts to the head.

The school is asking students and visitors to avoid the area surrounding St. John’s Hall for now.

The smaller bird has since been captured.
