Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences recently released a rehabilitated red shouldered hawk back to the wild. When it came time to release this beautiful raptor, Dr. Joao Brandao, assistant professor of zoological medicine, was assisted by Dr. John Vonhof, sponsor of the Hank Vonhof Memorial Foundation Scholarship, and Beverly Mullins, both friends of the veterinary center.
