Dear Laura,I am so sorry to tell you that the pigeon you brought to us on June 13 was too injured to recover, and we decided to humanely euthanize them to prevent further suffering. The head wound was indeed very bad: the bird's scalp was severely avulsed (to the degree that there was significant skin slippage over both eyes). When we examined the bird, we found that their neck was also ripped open. Although some wounds are treatable, this bird's injuries made recovery very unlikely. The bird was likely in a great deal of pain, and because they would not have recovered well enough to return to the wild, even with medical support, we made the decision to humanely euthanize them.I know this is not the outcome you were hoping for, but please know that by bringing this bird to us, you did save them from a great deal of future suffering. In cases like this, the kindest and most humane thing we can do is allow them to pass in peace and without further distress.
