Wildlife abounds on University Park campus

August 12, 2008

University Park, Pa. -- One never knows what one will see on Penn State's University Park campus, but even so a red-tailed hawk caught some passers-by by surprise on Monday afternoon (Aug. 11). The impressive bird of prey stationed itself on a lamppost near the back side of Old Main. Not surprisingly, there was no other wildlife around the area.
