    Would a hawk fly down and mess with or try to fly off with a human baby that's on a blanket in the yard?

    I heard about hawks flying off with small dogs, cats...etc right in front of the human owners. And we have an 8 month old-about 15lbs and I'd like to let her play outside on our blanket......or in her pack n play. But with seeing the hawks circling our pond and land now....I'm paranoid.

    You can laugh and call me silly....I know...it must be a dumb question....

    True not to worry about Hawks. One thing 2 case on the news. Where a Coyote had started draging a toddler, parents saw it and chase it away. If you have them in your area, be carefull about leaving dog,and cat food out.
