From Urban Hawks:
I got an email on Saturday, that two hawks had been found dead at Astoria Park. Excellent follow up by the Urban Park Rangers in Queens discovered two dead chickens rather than hawks. Dead chickens have been a problem in the park this summer, most likely from Santería animal sacrifices. While I'm relieved that the hawks are in good health, I do feel some sadness about the chickens.
Does Peter Vallone, Jr. have anything to say about this going on in his backyard?
