The hawks have arrived.
West University has issued an ominous warning to residents: Your beloved small pets might get carted off by a hawk.
"There has recently been a resident report of hawks or other large birds of prey nesting in the central portion of West University Place, seen near the intersection of Auden and Plumb," the warning says. "We wish to inform residents with small animals that they should be aware that situations such as this may pose a threat [to] smaller animals."
