ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- There have been lots of calls and lots of sightings, but Red is still on the loose.
The red tailed hawk escaped Thursday night from the Bird Treatment and Learning Center. Red is an education bird and while he can fly, he can't take care of himself in the wild.
There have been multiple sightings around town of a hawk with leather straps across his ankles.
He appears to be spending most of his time in trees along the New Seward Highway near the Dimond exit, but so far no one's been able to catch him.
If you see Red, contact the Pet Emergency Center at 274-5636 and they will contact staff at Bird TLC.

This Bohemian Waxwing came to Bird TLC from PET Emergency after someone had dropped it off. It was found on ground not flying and being attacked by other birds. During exam nothing sufficient was found wrong (NSF). A number of things could have happened from flying into something, fermented berries, your guess is as good as ours. This time of year we get a few of these berry bandits. They get to spend a few warm days with us inside and we fill them full of berries that volunteers picked and stored early in the season.
