PASCO, Wash. (AP) - Students at Mark Twain Elementary School in Pasco watched a red-tailed hawk fly back into the wild Tuesday, two weeks after it had been found in distress on school grounds.

The hawk had apparently picked up poison intended for starlings or rodents. It was treated at Blue Mountain Wildlife in Pendleton, Ore. Director Lynn Tompkins made the remark that it's a lesson for students to be careful with poison.
