Harris's Hawk? (Nevada, not my video)

Just came across this from social media --

Family warning others to watch out for pets after small dog was snatched by large bird

the video is fuzzy, but it seems to be a Harris's Hawk to me (I've never seen one myself, but I can see white rump and white tail-tip in the video)?! I checked allaboutbirds, the Nevada seems to be out of its range, but I know that they are found in Arizona.

What do you guys think?

Thanks,
Howard

The bird had jesses around its legs, so it was a falconer's bird. Harris's Hawks are often used in falconry.

Agree with Harris's Hawk and definitely a falconer's lost bird
