Animal Ambulance

I picked up another boobook owl today. The people said it was a tawny frogmouth with a broken wing. I'd contacted the zoo and told them I was bringing in a bird before I'd picked him up. A broken wing is beyond my capabilities.

When I finally picked up the bird and opened the box my heart sank. It looked ike something had torn all the feathers, skin and muscle from his forearm. The bone wasn't broken. That was easy to determin because I could see a good 2" length of it. The zoovet looked into the box, sighed and went "Oh."

Euthanasia was the only choice.
