STONINGTON, Conn. -- Authorities  say an aggressive red-tailed hawk has 
attacked at least five people recently in  a Connecticut town, including a 
woman who needed medical care after being cut on  the head.  


Police in Stonington, a shoreline town  bordering Rhode Island, warned 
residents Wednesday by e-mail and through the  town's reverse 911 system to 
watch out for the large hawk.  
Recess and gym classes at a nearby school were held indoors.  
Officials say the hawk has snatched a hat off a boy's head, snagged  
headphones from a man on a lawnmower and even attacked a car. On Tuesday, it  
gashed a woman's head so deeply that she was checked at a local hospital.  
The state Department of Environmental Protection is working with the city 
to  find the bird and determine what to do about its aggressive  behavior.
