HAWK WARNING: Protect Your Small Pets
Attention pet owners with small pets. If your pet weighs less than 12 pounds, be on the look out for hawks. Along the east coast, hawks seem to be out in force. Small animals are their prey. Protect your small pets from these predators.
Here are some simple ways to protect your small animals:
- Keep them on a leash and supervise them at all times while they are outdoors
- Remove bird feeders
- Place shiny, movable objects in your yard
- Build a mesh wire roof over the area your pet hangs out
KEEP YOUR PETS SAFE!
