Boy battles hawk to save pup

`Chris Campo had to fight a wild beast for his puppy’s life on Friday when a red tailed hawk tried to turn the youngster’s Dachshund into dinner.

But, a well-placed kick by Campo to the hawk’s head freed 5-month-old Dimi, who quickly high-tailed it to safety. [..]

“I go outside and there was this enormous red tailed hawk and it had attacked the dog on its leash,” said Charles Campo. “It was trying to carry the dog off, and my son wouldn’t let go and he fought off the hawk. My son was literally fighting a hawk – I was stunned.”’
