Keller neighborhood facing terror from above as red-shouldered hawk attacks people

May 9, 2024

“We’ve got the umbrellas, obviously, and neighbors, you know, wear helmets mowing their lawns, and no children are outside without a helmet on,” neighbor Alana Gray said.

The postal service also confirmed while mail is being delivered, the hawk has prevented the safe delivery of packages to some residents who now have to pick them up at the Roanoke post office.

“It’s just gotten to the point that we can’t function normally with this threat in our neighborhood,” Gray said.

That’s why Gray said she spent days calling different agencies for help.

“We can’t touch it legally, so we have to involve the right departments,” Gray said. “The right officials to handle it themselves.”

The neighborhood is now working with a wildlife biologist from the USDA. A plan to have the Hawks safely relocated is being worked out.
