In more terrifying animal news (as if Rat Bite Fever weren't enough!): this article about an injured hawk in Stuyvesant Square Park features some fun urban wildlife facts. For example, did you know that pigeons have a parasite in their body that they can survive with, but will kill "anything that eats them"? This is mostly bad news for hawks and Mike Tyson, but mostly hawks, which prey on pigeons and rats (the recently injured one was first believed to have eaten a poisoned rat). Maybe everyone should just stick to barbeque chicken scraps. Or not, circle of life, etc.
