Sometimes cracks in the rescue system result in tragedy. In this case, a bird who someone cared enough about to put a blank band on her foot was allowed to free fly (unsafe for king pigeons) and was injured by a predator. (I think it was a dog because she had injuries on both sides of her body but it might have been a hawk or a cat.)
On 12/12, the injured bird was found at 7th & Lake in SF and taken to the SF animal shelter. A wound was noted, considered to be healing and no treatment was provided.
Birds that are wounded NEED ANTIBIOTICS ASAP!
