Hawk attacks Wilkes-Barre man 3 times near cemeteries
Aggressive broad-winged hawk inflicts minor injuries. Attack unusual, experts say.

By Tom Venesky tvenesky@timesleader.com

WIILKES-BARRE -- Wilkes-Barre resident Mike Liechty didn’t think it would be a problem when he went to look for black raspberries behind the Hollenback and Wilkes-Barre City cemeteries last month.

He walked the gravel trail between the river and cemeteries many times to pick berries and returned unscathed. But on June 14, Liechty came back from his walk not with a bounty of ripe raspberries but with a bloody scalp and an unexpected enemy.

While Liechty stood on the gravel trail, something struck the back of his head. It felt like someone threw a rock, he said, but no one was in sight.

“I saw a robin and thought I might be close to its nest, but a robin couldn’t strike this hard,” Liechty said.

He touched his head and felt blood, then looked up in a tree 15 feet away and found the attacker.

“I saw a beautiful hawk sitting there. I thought maybe I was near a rabbit or something it had just killed,” he said.

I want to go and see if i get attacked lol.

Why? He obviously (if unknowingly) walked into the territory of said hawk and it felt threatened. The hawk was only acting as it always does, there is no need to kill such a beautiful bird.
