Friday, June 14, for employees of the Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve was clouded by a serious traffic accident in which a young elk died. It was a young male with still soft, neosteen horns. He was hit by a car.
The name “hawk”, probably was formed on the basis of ancient slavic root meaning “speed” and “speckled, mottled”. A characteristic feature of the hunting hawk – a slashing final throw on the victim. The cross-mottled pattern on the bird’s chest is well-known.
