SILSBEE, TEXAS — A Game Warden and Licensed Falconer were called in after a Coopers Hawk was discovered inside of a Walmart in Texas.

Hardin County Game Warden Mark Nelson, along with Licensed Falconer Phillip White, responded to the Silsbee Walmart to assist.

The Coopers Hawk, which had somehow made its way inside the building, was seen sitting in the rafters, casually observing shoppers.

The two heroes were able to capture the Hawk, unharmed.

The Hawk was then successfully released back into the wild, according to Texas Game Wardens.
