CHICAGO (1010 WINS) -- The Chicago Blackhawks' mascot is a feisty creature.

The feathered mascot -- known as Tommy Hawk -- was attacked by a man at the United Center Friday, but like many animals in the wild, Tommy Hawk's instincts kicked in and he fought back.

The whole altercation was caught on video and the Blackhawks said it is investigating the incident.

Police said the mascot was attacked by a man estimated to be 5-foot-5 tall and 160 pounds and around 20-years-old.

The video does not show the initial encounter but shows Tommy Hawk body-slamming his alleged attacker.
