MERIDEN — Connecticut State Environmental Conservation Police are hoping someone with information about what happened to a red-tailed hawk will come forward.

On Tuesday, an injured juvenile red-tailed hawk was found at a home near the exit 4 ramp on Interstate 691 and West Main Street in Meriden.

The hawk was taken to Kensington Bird and Animal Hospital in Berlin. EnCon police said X-rays showed a metal pellet embedded in the bird’s left wing, causing a break in the ulna bone.

EnCon police said the hawk currently remains under observation.
