 October Highlights
Things are finally slowing down a bit, and we were able to move the last of our "babies" out of the mammal nursery and close it down for the season. Baby season is officially over, but now the injured young juveniles are making their way to us. Young hawks and owls out on their own for the first time are hurt while hunting. Generally, they are hit by cars. We see these types of cases annually. They can have wing injuries, head trauma, and eye issues. Both of the birds pictured below have eye injuries from blunt force trauma caused by the car strikes. These cases are tricky and take time to resolve.
1. Juvenile Red-tail hawk recovering from an eye injury after being hit by a car. 2.Young Barred owl also recovering from a car strike. She has a serious injury to her eye as well. Our vet, Dr. Lahner is closely monitoring their healing and our staff administer eye medications daily.
This time of year we also get a rise in gunshot cases. While it is legal at different times to hunt various species - sometimes the birds are shot and not retrieved, or they are shot erroneously. This Canada goose had surgery to pin the broken wing. There was also some shot found in one leg. She is doing well and we hope will be able to fly again one day.
1. Dr. Lahner removed this piece of shot from her leg. 2. After the surgery, her pinned wing is wrapped. 3. The bandages are being changed regularly, while we monitor the healing.
Be sure to follow updates to our weekly blog – Patient of the Week on our website. We share other things, videos, and photos on our FaceBook page as well. Our DONATE page can be found here.
