First things first: the hawk is ok.

This is a classic *record scratch* *freeze frame* "you're probably wondering how I got myself into this situation" scenario. Like the caption says, the hawk was chasing a pigeon when it got itself caught in the fence outside a LES playground. NYPD showed up to free the animal, who then decided it was time to quit hanginaround and freed itself. Now all we have left are the memories.. until someone makes a meme out of it. Then we'll have that.
