Allegedly, Jackalcakes absolute ninja of a mother grabbed the bird of prey moments before it helped itself to some chicken nuggets.
The internet, obviously, lost its mind. On top of OP’s gladiator mom, people loved the hawk’s surprised expression.
"Yup, thats me. I bet you're wondering how I got in this situation…"

Apparently, hawks are no stranger to surprise. The shocked facial expression isn’t uncommon for the bird.

The mom eventually lets the hawk go free. It now warily steers clear of her chicken coop.
