Photo of the Week: Pepsi the Hawk, defender of London's air ambulances

A 2-year-old Harris's hawk helps deter pesky pigeons that can interfere with London's Air Ambulance Charity aircraft

Calling all EMS photographers! EMS1 wants to see pictures of you in action or training. Submit a photo — it could be selected as our Photo of the Week! Be sure to include your name, department information and some background on the photo.

This week's Photo of the Week comes from London's Air Ambulance Charity, highlighting an unlikely defender of the city's medical aircraft. 

Pepsi, a 2-year-old Harris's hawk, is deployed every couple weeks to get rid of pigeons that like to hang around the service's helipad, posing a hazard to the air ambulances. Pepsi is shown here with Paramedic Lynsey Grant.
