A motivated hawk has ruffled the feathers of an unassuming neighbourhood in Calgary, Canada, after its repeated attacks on a Canada Post employee has left over 150 homes without a mail service.
The Swainson’s hawk has singled out one postal worker in particular, who has endured multiple attacks by the bird of prey. Even protection could not stop the hawk, as the bird dive-bombed with enough force to break the postal workers bicycle helmet.
One local, Kathryn Kan, stated, “We had film crews out there on Thursday all morning. Nobody got swooped, nobody…It’s not that big an issue. It’s just that particular carrier that has a problem.”
Local residents are eagerly waiting for the winged menace to leave for its annual migration to Argentina.
