Town Manager Steven Werbner, in his monthly report to the Town Council, points out that the Tolland Animal Control Department investigated several calls about sick and/or injured raccoons, skunks, fox, and deer in July.
But perhaps the most interesting call was to Animal Control Officer Michael LaPointe about an injured young hawk off South River Road.
LaPointe was able to capture and secure the bird and he found a rehabilitation facility to take it in, Werbner said.
In an unrelated adventure, Animal Control Officer Tina Binheimer received a call about two roaming llamas. With no room in her vehicle to transport the large animals, she had to herd them on foot for about a quarter-mile in order to return them safely to their pasture, Werbner said.
Tolland Animal Control received 69 complaints in July compared to 88 in June, Werbner said.
Last July, 74 complaints were registered, according to the department's activity report.
