Gunshot victim

Not everyone likes corvids but I do and it pains me to see one injured in just this way. They are very intelligent birds and are rarely hurt in the wild. The exception is when a human decides to just go out and shoot something. In this case it's CROW, a beautiful American Crow. The xrays reveal one shot still in her left wing between her shoulder and elbow. Unfortunately another one smashed through her left wrist joint damaging it beyond repair. When the wound is healed I will try and place this super bird at a facility for use in educational work.

  1. I absolutely love corvids! Intelligent,curious, and birds that seem to actually have fun in life. I so hope that you find an educational facility that will want her. I SO HATE it when people think corvids, raptors, and other wild birds are good for target practice.
