This hawk was spotted hanging out near the Fulton Mall in Brooklyn over the weekend, and an eyewitness to the scene told Animal that it stayed there calmly for about ten minutes until a curious dog got too close for comfort. We contacted our hawk expert to find out if hawks chilling on city sidewalks like this is normal (usually they're just swooping down to steal our chicken), and will update when we hear back. Until then, read an entertaining story about why Animal got the photos, and not the NY Post, who was gunning for them (hint: it pays to support the 99%).

UPDATE:Yojimbot tells us this behavior is "not normal, but sometimes city hawks don't have a normal fear of people. Often when they are acting listless or confused it's because they have a disease called frounce."
