CARING FOR SCOTLAND'S SICK, INJURED AND ORPHANED WILDLIFE

July 28th 2013

It isn’t always good news at the wildlife rescue centre. Today a buzzard was delivered to us, and we were disappointed to see it had been shot. A pellet had punctured the buzzard’s crop, and some of its last meal was oozing out. We cleaned it up, stitched the wound, and hope that the pellet hasn’t gone right through the crop. The bird will need antibiotics, and we are hopeful of a full recovery.
