On last Friday April 24th Mountain Vista’s B Shift Crew: Engine and Rescue 620, responded to a request by wildlife biologists to assist with a hawk rescue. The hawk had managed to get its leg caught in a tree and according to the property owner, had been trapped there for several days. With direction from wildlife biologists, Station 620 firefighters safely removed the hawk from the tree where it was given to the wildlife biologists for rehabilitation.

In a separate incident that afternoon, a swarm of bees began gathering near a local grocery store. MVFD crews had been observing the bees, over the course of a few days, to determine if they would dissipate on their own. Instead of dispersing, the bees congregated around a motorcycle while the owner was inside a local grocery store. The bees were then sprayed with foam to avoid danger to store patrons.
