Admission Date: 
01/07/2019
Cause of Admission: 
Broken collar bone
UPDATE: 01/12/19 Surprisingly this Coopers Hawk was found dead today. It was thought he was recovering but Coopers Hawks are very high strung birds . They do poorly in captivity. Sometimes the stress of captivity can be too much for them

A volunteer took this Cooper’s hawk to Pine Valley for examination by our veterinarian.  This hawk was found at 2600 Broadway in Fort Wayne.  It was observed to be sitting on the ground by a sidewalk for an hour.  After examination, it was discovered to have a broken collarbone. He will be treated for pain in our treatment facility.
