I think this was funny- not the part of the child getting hurt. But her freds fall her A-Rod and she was at fenway. she was the only one attacked
The opening week of the Major League Baseball season had a few surprises. For example, the Kansas City Royals sweeping the Detroit Tigers was unexpected.
But nothing was more surprising than the attack of A-Rod at Fenway Park.
A red-tailed hawk with a nest and egg in a nearby overhang, attacked Alexa Rodriquez, 13, of Bristol, Connecticut. A-Rod, as she's now called, was rushed to the hospital where she was treated for cuts to her scalp.
Rodriquez was touring the park with a group of middle school students and appeared to be okay when released from the hospital. A-Rod is tough; she plans on rejoining her classmates for the rest of the overnight tour of Fenway.
What's next? A girl named Big Papi will be attacked in New York trying to enjoy dinner and a Broadway show? Or perhaps Alberta Pujols will be attacked by a bear in Chicago?
Just in case you were wondering, the nest and egg were later removed at the direction of state wildlife officials.
Looking at the pics, it makes me wonder what people are thinking. Those kids were walking just a few feet away from not only a wild animal, but a flippin' RAPTOR!!! C'mon, people, they kill things and eat them by design!!!
We have eagles near our home, and I always keep an eye out for them, because they tend to get closer to people than I consider "safe". Birds of Prey, except those raised for hunting, are generally what I would consider as a "dangerous animal".
I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details
