Lambton County staff members are raising money to help Hadfield get off the ground again.

Not the Sarnia-born astronaut circling the globe in the International Space Station, but a Red-Tailed Hawk which was found injured on the side of Highway 402.

Public Works Manager Jason Cole found the bird on the road between Mandaumin and Oil Heritage Roads Monday. He took the bird to the Bluewater Centre for Raptor Rehabilitation for treatment. The bird had suffered a broken wing.

Staff named the bird Hadfield and began raising money for x-rays and food. Even Warden Todd Case is getting into the act, offering to auction off his parking space for a month to raise money for the bird’s care.

If you would like to help Hadfield fly again, you can contact the centre directly by calling 519-899-2443.
