Man attacked by falcon on Bear Mtn. bridge

today. Newman says his head started to bleed after the first strike, prompting him, his wife and their dog to flee with the angry falcon still chasing them.

Maintenance workers say the falcons have apparently settled underneath the bridge and even have baby chicks down there.

The DEC says it?s aware of an unusually aggressive female falcon on the bridge, but won?t evaluate the situation for another few weeks when nesting season is over.
